Chance is very low unless you finish 4+ years of working in SG

You can apply and see. Chance may be low now. Else, increase your salary to around 8K+ and then try. You will have a decent chance then.

Your chance for PR is low even without counting the current pandemic situation.

Negatives
1. Ethnicity
2. Salary on lower side
3. Short Stay in Singapore/Just 1 tax return
4. Didnt include family in application
5. At 9 years you should be a lead and not a developer?

From what I can see, anybody applying for PR during the Covid pandemic is only looking to survive in Singapore, e.g., why apply during a pandemic when you have already been here on EP for 5 years. Does your husband's employment look in jeopardy? Is that why you feel it's necessary at this point in time?

I'm not asking because I want to know. But if the thought occurs to me, you can be sure it occurs to those officers in ICA vetting applications during a period of economic/health crisis. Had you applied for it say, in Sept/Oct of 2019 you probably would have a higher chance (how high is another story however) as it was before the scramble for residency due to economic collapse thought processes.

Are you sure you’ve been in SG for 5 years?

I suggest you don’t just read Times of India and start reading the Straits Times to know what's going here, if you are not already doing so, and if you want to integrate with the society.

The political debates over the past few days during the hustings are targeting a certain group or issue.

You may still have a chance - around 30-35%. But if you are not in a rush and wish to settle here for long, apply after 5 years of your stay in SG.

More like 0.3% to 0.35%. Show me an Indian who got PR in the last 3 months and I bet you've mistaken a SriLankan for an Indian.

Did you hear the old joke about the guy running the chili crab stall on Boat Quay? He had a box of Thai crabs, Aussie crabs and Indian crabs at the front of his restaurant. The Indian crab box was open and a passerby asked "aren't you worried about your Indian crabs escaping?". He said, "no sir, as soon as one Indian crab tries to get out the other Indian crabs pull him back into the box".
