It is not going to help if you reapply after 6 months. Something significant has to change to get an approval. Salary looks to be on the lower side, added with the ethnic quota etc. Wait for 2 years, improve your career, salary, etc and then reapply.

You have to really think - what are you going to bring to the table that differentiates you from all the other Indian applicants?

If you can’t come up with anything...then the answer may not be any different than before.

I would also say that the gov probably looks at this in black and white terms. Will you add to Singapore or are you just passing through?
The simplest way is to look at your salary. With your salary, you are only pay around $2.5k in taxes. Your tax contribution is low. I like to think in terms of 120k salary (10k/month) as a good starting mark as you would be paying almost 8k in taxes.

The more you contribute, the more likely you are to be offered PR.

Thank you all for shedding some light. As an engineer at this age, I really believe what I am getting is a decent market salary. However, I will try to see if I can do something to improve my pay! Haha, thanks again

I dont think higher the salary/taxes, higher the chances. There are many who pay 10-15K of taxes every year and are in SG for the past 5-8 years and still are rejected. In my view, as long as you meet the basic salary requirement it is enough and salary is just one factor of the many factors that they take into consideration to evaluate an application.

In fact sometimes higher the salary, the chances may be low because these applicants might easily migrate and move to a high paying job in another country. Something above the threshold and medium in terms of salary/taxes is more than enough

Insurance - NO
Community activities - Used to help if done over long term like 5-10 years. But not anymore

No longer makes any difference. In fact, with regard to community activities, thanks to one nationality they see community service and know that it is all for show and as soon as they get PR, they're done with community service unless they are trying to get brownie points to get their little ones into a school of choice, then you see them running to join the PA/CC/RC. I've seen it with my own eyes time and time again, as I've been in the RCs for over a dozen years.

It is WAIT for few years and then apply. Not apply now and wait.

I get your point. I was just trying to provide an illustration of the contribution using salary as the example. I wasn't trying to say that salary is *only* criteria.
When I say "The more you contribute, the more likely you are to be offered PR." I should have been more explicit and said "The more you contribute *broadly to Singapore society*, the more likely you are to be offered PR."
