Abstract: Numerical studies have been carried out to study the dynamic behaviour of a five-storey regular building, symmetric setback and asymmetric setback buildings having three bays along longitudinal direction and one bay along transverse direction. The objective of the study is to compare the irregularity indices with respect to different codal provisions such as IS:1893-2016, Euro Code 8-2004 and ASCE 7.05-2005 as well as with the expressions proposed by Karavasilis et al. (2008), and Pradip sarkar et al.(2010). These buildings are subjected to seismic excitations with time history analysis and the response parameters such as fundamental period of vibration of the structures, displacements and storey drifts were evaluated. 
Keywords: Regular Building, Symmetric Setback Building, Asymmetric Setback Building.
