Tirupati, Jan 6: Targeting a revenue of over Rs 230 crore from sale of hair, obtained through ceremonial tonsure, the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) is planning to float global tenders for the sale of hair.

Addressing a press conference here yesterday, TTD Chairman B Karunakara Reddy said the Board had decided to float global tenders to generate more revenue out of the hair sale.
