          @rajesh2373 – the text frame was scaled.


          The actual point size is 21.6 pt, the original point size (before scaling) is 18 pt.

          If a paragraph style is involved, you cannot see a change in the paragraph style panel (usually indicated with a + at the end of the paragraph style name).


          To prevent this you could:

          1. Set different preferences at:

          General / When Scaling / Apply to Content


          or for the single case:
          2. Use the Transform Panel and its options with "Redefine Scaling as 100%"
