I couldnt get a good explanation differentiating phase and grain.From what I understood, a collection of unit cells arranged in the same orientation is called grain.A collection of grains with similar structure is called phase.Is this interpretation right?

I'm confused by your question. Are you asking about solid/liquid/gas phases?

No, iron-iron carbide phases(which includes solid, liquid and different solid phases).
