India has a range of the world’s greatest earthquakes in the last century. Assuredly, quite one-half space within the country is considered at risk of damaging earthquakes. The northeastern region of the country as well as the entire Himalayan belt is liable to great earthquakes of magnitude over 8.0. the objective of this study is to determine the seismic vulnerability of R.C.C. structures of the Hyderabad City by R.V.S (Rapid Visual Screening) technique and also the Turkish method. Investigations of past and recent earthquake damage have depicted that the building structures are at risk of severe damage and/or collapse during moderate to sturdy ground motion. an earthquake with a moderate magnitude is capable of inflicting severe damage of designed buildings, bridges, industrial and port facilities additionally as giving rise to huge economic losses. The areas covered under the survey are Adarsh Nagar residential area, jubilee Hills and Tolichowki. The survey was primarily focused on earthquake problems like identifying building type, plot size and shape, clear distances from close structures, road width and basic data of the building: type of foundation, slab type, year of construction, no. of storeys, no. of inhabitants etc. The detail analysis (or the level-2 analysis) coated the determination of support space (length x width), column size and direction, lift core size, cantilever length of the building etc. Digital images of every building from a minimum of two directions were taken. The developers ’ names concerned with every building ar
