In present scenario buildings with floating column is typical feature in modern multi-storey construction in India. Such features are unavoidable in building built in seismically active areas. The present study investigates the effects of the structural irregularities which are produced by discontinuity of column in a building subjected to seismic load. The structural response of building of 8 storey model with respect to fundamental time period, spectral acceleration, Base shear. Storey drift and storey displacement is investigated. Results shows that provision of floating columns increases story displacements. Same is with story drift, provision of floating columns increases story drift. FC is not preferable in higher earthquake zones because of high value of displacements according to code.
