Let c be a row vector which gives the initial value of each column integer range together with a final element which is 1 greater than the end of the last range. (In your example it would be as below.)

c = [0,3,5,8,12,23,25,27,40,53];
n = length(c)-1;
m = 40;
M = floor(repmat(diff(c),m,1).*rand(m,n))+repmat(c(1:n),m,1);

M is your desired matrix.
