New Delhi, Jan 22 (UNI) Tanishq, a jewellery division of Titan Industries Ltd, today said it is eyeing a total revenue of Rs 2,000 crore, besides opening seven exclusive outlets across the country by March 2008.
''For the last nine months of the current financial year, we have already exceeded the last year turnover of Rs 1,292 crore.
By March this year, we will achieve Rs 2,000 crore revenue,'' Tanishq Vice President (Marketing) V K Govindraj told reporters here.
The country's largest jewellery brand is growing at a rate of 50 per cent, he said adding the company will open seven new outlets across the country to cater to the needs of the people.
Tanishq has 103 boutiques in 73 cities across the country with a premium range of gold jewellery studded with diamonds or coloured gems and a wide range in 22 kt pure gold.
Mr Govindraj, however, refused to divulge further details about where the firm is going to open the outlets.
