A study on triple diffusive magneto convection is made for a fluid – porous composite system with rigid-rigid boundaries insulated to temperature and concentration.  The porous layer of the composite system is modeled using Darcy–Brinkman model.  The method of regular perturbation approach is employed to find the eigen-value for the problem considered.  The critical Rayleigh number as criterion for the onset of convection is derived for step function, salting below and desalting above salinity profiles.  The effect of various physical parameter on the onset of convection is graphically depicted and the stability of the system is analyzed.
