What are the permissible horizontal deflection in building?

# For wind case : permissible max. Horizontal deflection is H/500.
# For EQ case : permissible max. Horizontal deflection is H/250.
# For EQ case you have to satisfy story drift criteria of 0.004H also.
All deflection worked out shall be for service loads only i.e. for unfactored combinations.
