Motion of plasma in pulsar magnetospheres have been studied using Minkowski space-time and taking into account several classical, quasi-classical and quantum processes. This picture may change when a General Relativistic environment is considered. This paper will present the associated physical processes and different scenarios, taking into account the mass and angular velocity of the star.
