This document presents novel algorithms for detection of noisy and flickering pixels from Burst Alert telescope event data and subsequent elimination of data from such pixels to create a filtered event file. The approach adopted for this purpose is quite different from the current practises and focuses more on the temporal variation of data in the detector pixels over long intervals of time against the current algorithms which follow a pixel based approach.
