Mr Subrata Sen
MD, Creative Museum Designers
Creative Museum Designers (CMD) was established in October, 2011 as a Section 25 company under Companies Act 1956 by National Council of Science Museums (NCSM). The company was created with the mandate of creating Science Museums, Science Centres, Planetaria and such other Knowledge Centres all over India and was formed under guarantee. As there were no shareholders, being a section 25 company, it had to start its operation with zero capital base. Initially, the company obtained a loan of Rs. 20 lakh from NCSM with a strict commitment of returning it back within one year timeframe. In fact, we started our stride forward with our knowledge base and professional expertise as the working capital for the Company. I am happy to inform to all our stakeholders that today, after seven years of successful operation, we have been able to establish the company on a very firm footing. During this period the company could establish its own research laboratories, production facilities and most important of them all, was successful in generating a pool of highly creative, efficient and professional manpower. As the infrastructure grew, deliverables also started flowing out. It could deliver several science expositions, media theatres and such other facilities to its elite clients. The reserve and surplus of the company now stands at a comfortable level of Rs. 14.89 crore (as on 31st March, 2019). During the financial year 2018-19, the company has been able to achieve a turnover of Rs. 9.62 crore (up to March, 2019). The confirmed order to the company at present stands around Rs. 170 crore and the company is full of job till 2022. Here, in CMD, we could make it possible due to the wholehearted effort and support extended to us by our own staff, NCSM and our all other stakeholders. Our heartfelt thanks go to all of them for their patronage and with their continued support, I am confident that the company will be able to achieve greater heights in future.
