Salaries are based on job, experience and skills.

Not how much you make in another country.

On this salary in India, you should consider only those options that offer you atleast 8K per month. If you have kids then add 2K (per month) per kid on top of it :) ... Otherwise it is not worth moving.

Assuming either a full-stack java / .net background + relevant business expertise, then likely around 6000-7000 for a MNC/Bank, if you can find one hiring developers in Singapore (most have their development shops in India).

I don't have a lot of experience with local companies, but suspect its 1K-2K less.

Software developers in Singapore are on much lower comp then in other developed countries (in NA or Europe for example) because of the almost endless supply willing to work cheaply from neighboring countries.

Once you hit more senior levels (architect, development manager etc.) then salaries shoot up dramatically and you can expect around 10k-12.5k a month. (again, for MNCs)

First of all don't use the work Lakh outside of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Nobody understands it. Use 1Lakh = 100K.

Your salary is already good in India, unless you get 8K in SG, don't come.
