Budget Report for the year 2006-2007
It is our pleasure to notice that our website is gathering considerable attention on national and international universities as well as research labs. We as the moderators would like to congratulate every Cusatian member for showing this much effort taken for developing and publicizing the web site. The valuable posts by each of you are well praised. Now we are completing three years of successful launch.
We have spent the following amount for the site launch and maintenance. On the 1st of January 2005, we spent about 18$: We registered the domain and hosted the site in Starter plan (100MB web space and 1GB bandwidth).As we noticed that the band width used in one month exceeds 1GB, we shifted to Standard plan for getting additional 1GB bandwidth and 100MB web space.So altogether we spent around $27. (***For web hosting 10+9=$19 and domain registration 8$) or in Indian rupees about Rs.1188/-. And we collected about Rs.2500/-(66$) from our members. So the balance amount we have is 2500-1188= RS. 1712/-. ($39) As one year term (2005) comes to an end we have to renew the contract with the hosting server as last year. As we look more forward to the future and we thought to renew the contract for next two years, which will save us from upcoming price hikes. So for two years it will come about $57 (Rs. 2508). The amount has been paid and the contract has been renewed for next two more years. So a deficit of Rs.796 ($18) is there. (Budget Report 2005).
In the second year, as we started with some deficit, we could get some money through pay-pal account. We collected about 36$ (Details given in Contribution list @ Cusatian's).
So as of now we have 18$ with us. But as you all know we need more money to fulfill our ambitions about the site. To renew me may require about 60$. If we are planning to have some workshop or some journals, etc still more amount have to be collected. I request you to be generous and help this site to grow, more over; this is your own site. So just build it higher…….
I request each of these institute members to participate actively in suggesting and contributing for the development of the site. Do give publicity about the site in the respective working places so that we can have more and more interacting chances.
