R&D activities at BTRA cover applied and basic research, process and product development, new and frontier areas of technology, engineering and microprocessor-based instrumentation, operational studies to improve and standardise mill working, testing and consultancy services, maintenance audit, energy conservation and additional energy sources, communication and training, post graduate research and appropriate technology for the decentralised sector. 
 
Assistance to the government and public sector institutions on matters related to technological aspects of the industry is also an integral part of its activities. (RKS)
