In this paper, we investigated the stagnation point flow of Maxwell viscoelasticity with incompressible based micropolar fluid over a Riga plate. The mathematical model has been constructed though micropolar fluid flows over Riga plate. The implement the boundary layer approximation, the system of partial differential equations is produced through momentum equation along with micro inertia theory. Nonlinear partial differential equations are become dimensionless nonlinear ordinary differential equations through suitable similarity transformations. This system is solved numerical scheme via BVP4C method. The effects of involving physical parameters like as dimensionless parameter, Modified Hartman number, Material parameter, Slip condition σ_s, Viscoelastic parameter δ_m and Soret coefficient S_T are highlighted through graphs and numerical results. The physical quantities like as Skin friction, local Nusselt number and local Sher-wood number are highlighted through tables. R is increasing with increasing dimensionless parameter, Material parameter K and Slip condition σ_s. R is decreasing with increasing behavior of Modified Hartman number Z and viscoelastic parameter δ_m.
