What framerate are regular PAL BD titles?

I've been messing around with BD rips for my Apple TV. One thing I noticed is the fps. Once I've ripped a disk using MakeMKV, VLC reports that the fps is 23.976, while Handbrake reports it to be 23.81. It seems to do this for all my BD rips. I thought NTSC format was 23.976 and PAL was 24. Which one is correct? I can't understand why Handbrake thinks it's 23.81.

Also, once the encode is done, VLC reports it to have a framerate of 23.98. What the heck is going on?

NTSC DVD = 23.976 or 29.970fps (depending if source is film or tv)
PAL DVD = 25fps
Blu-rays = 23.976fps (blu-ray has no PAL or NTSC, all blu-rays are the same regardless of region)

That explains a lot. Thanks for the info.

Yes almost all are at 23.976fps but if it is 1080i it will be 1080i50 (European Standard) which won't playback on most US HDTVs/BD Players

Yep, the only odd Blu-ray I've got in my collection of over 70 is a David Gilmour concert disk, its 1080i60 and region A, everything else in my collection is 1080p24. Theres always one disk that messes up the set
