The solutions of the Einstein and Einstein-Maxwell equations for magnetofluid with cosmological constant are obtained for plane-symmetric space-time. We recover the results of Hojman and Santamarina in a special case when the magnetic field is made to vanish. It has also been shown that under a suitable transformation the cases Λ=0 and Λ≠0 are mathematically equivalent.
