In the name of hair collecting license, the hair offered by the pilgrims was auctioned by open auction or tender system. In fasli 1418 the tender amount was less than the previous year, so the temple itself collected the hairs and sold it directly.

To collect the hair of the large number of the pilgrims, for the first time, temporary tonsuring sheds have been established at Manoor river bank.
