The study was carried out to analyze the compliance status of NBC and Byelaws in private housing construction of Tilottama Municipality. The permitted building samples with all necessary documents is taken for research purpose to trace the compliance status of National Building Code and Byelaws in construction of private housing. Field verification and review of approved drawings and building permits of 51 numbers of households from the total population of 323are selected by purposive sampling method to check the compliance status of NBC and Byelaws provisions. The samples are taken from both ProfessionallyEngineeredBuildingsandMandatoryruleofthumb-(NBC205) buildings constructed in the Tilottama Municipality. From the study, it is found that after the earthquake concerned stakeholders possess good knowledge of earthquake and its consequences. Knowledge regarding the earthquake resistant design and construction process is found fairly adequate. The perspective of concerned stakeholders towards building code and byelaws are positive. Out of 51 households surveyed, only 7 of the buildings have not complied with all the technical requirements of NBC whereas the building byelaws provisions are found to be effectively implemented by 44 buildings. The adopted process and existing mechanism for the implementation of building code and byelaws by the municipality is not effective as the tracking system of building permit process is ineffective.
