The Darwin platform group under the leadership of its charismatic chairman Ajay Harinath Singh is all set to venture into the entertainment industry as a trailblazer. It is a conglomerate of 19 companies under the Darwin platform group which was valued at Rs 26000 cr in the year 2012-13. with assets over Rs 26,000 crore. Recently while bidding for a majority stake in Jet Airways, the company submitted its balance sheet which showed asset valuation worth Rs. 41,000 crore.
The valuation also baffled the income tax department as it issued a notice to one of the group companies, Darwin Infrastructure Limited suspecting 1900cr to be borrowing but which was later confirmed to be their asset by the Shapariya and Mehta consultants which were appointed by the Income Tax Department on the instruction of the CAG. Darwin platform group is one of the very few or the only Indian companies of this magnitude to be a debt-free asset-based company.
