The Earthquake resistant RCC Structure designed according to IS codes, may not meet the requirements of UFC (UNIFIED Facilities Criteria) limits & have high potential to progressive collapse. In this paper a linear static analysis is carried out according to GSA guidelines by using a Finite Element Method based software ETABS. A RCC structure is under consideration in which columns are removed at different locations and floors and amongst them most critical column is evaluated which could cause
