I am using geometry package with \LoadClass[twocolumn]{article}. But when I use geometry, the options for left,right,top,bottom are effecting only in even pages not in odd pages.

How can i change globally in geometry package.

the Class file:

\LoadClass[twocolumn]{article}

\RequirePackage{geometry}
\geometry{
left={15mm},
right={15mm},
top={15mm},
bottom={15mm},
}

Use also oneside option when loading article. –  JLDiaz Dec 4 '12 at 16:06
    
I have tried with oneside option. but there is no required output. –  user19551 Dec 5 '12 at 15:22
    
What version of geometry are you using? CTAN puts the most recent one at 5.6. To see this, add \listfiles before \documentclass and look at the contents of your .log file after *File List*. It may be that your version is outdated, since I obtain the expected (equivalent) output for even/odd pages on my machine. –  Werner Dec 6 '12 at 0:42

The following example shows that everything is as expected:

19551.cls

\LoadClass[twocolumn]{article}

\RequirePackage{geometry}
\geometry{
left={15mm},
right={15mm},
top={15mm},
bottom={15mm},
}

19551.tex

\documentclass{19551}
\geometry{showframe}
\usepackage{kantlipsum}
\begin{document}
\kant[1-20]
\end{document}

The first two pages side by side
