How did you prove to ICA that you are well integrated with Singapore society? I guess that is one of the biggest concern for them?
Perhaps he's a "worldcitizen" and you're a "NorthIndian"? :)

Did anyone try to decline the AIP? What the impact would be?

You wouldn't get citizenship. You might have a hard time later if you want to try again though.

What happened? the new holding period of HDB, and stamp duties made it to unattractive to try to flip properties?

They will have a long memory. Future SC application may NOT be approved. Very very rare, even your REP renewal may have issues. But this is extreme and not very likely - as they may feel that you have taken benefits, but do not want to commit to SG.
