2. M20( 1:1.5:3)

3 M15 ( 1:2:4)

M20 is the minimum for PCC and RCC for Residentail building

Dear Navneet
      As stated by Sh. Ahmed the standard mix is

1. M25(1:1:2)

2. M20( 1:1.5:3)

3 M15 ( 1:2:4)

But as you say about 1;3;3 In this mix sand contents are more and this mix is OVER SANDED and as much sand than requirement reduce the strength. Generally contractor use over sanded for easy finish.
