In India, standard brick size is 190 mm x 90 mm x 90 mm as per the recommendation of BIS.

With mortar thickness, the dimension of the brick becomes 200 mm x 100 mm x 100 mm which is also known as the nominal size of the modular brick.

For India, a brick of standard size 190 mm x 90 mm x 90 mm is recommended by the BIS. With mortar thickness, the size of such a brick becomes 200 mm x 100 mm x 100 mm and it is known as the nominal size of the modular brick.

Thus the nominal size of brick includes the mortar thickness.
