This paper presents the comparative study of effect of basalt fibre and recycled aggregate on compressive, tensile and flexure strength of M25 grade concrete. The basalt fibre was mixed in concrete by 0.5% and 1% of its total weight of cement and coarse aggregate was replaced by recycled aggregate with 0%, 20%, 40% and 60% in concrete. Results indicated that the strength increases with increase of recycled content up to 40% beyond that there is a reduction in strength on increasing recycled aggregate. The results show that the concrete specimen with 1.0% of basalt fibre gives better performance when it compared with 0.5% basalt fibre mix in concrete specimens.
