Abstract: Due to improper knowledge of seismic hazards buildings designed using modern principles observe earlier failure. This leads to loss of property as well as lives. Structures subjected to the earthquake are supposed to be analysed by possible practical methods for forecasting seismic demands. Hence such methods which are based on the behaviour of structures need to be developed prior to design. The exact analysis can be obtained by imparting site-specific data to predict the performance of the structure along with nonlinear analysis. Ground motions are scaled to get SSD using SEISMOMATCH 2016 to perform incremental dynamic analysis of structures using SAP 2000 subjected to several ground motions. Pushover curves are plotted for each structural model. The study is carried out considering the earthquake-prone region of north India on 5, 12 and 18-storey moment resisting RC frames. The structures analysed for selected ground motion found to be more efficient for absorbing like actual vibrations and also make the analysis procedure more effective
