Salary is a positive, but you really haven't been in Singapore for that long a time.
The question really is do you stand out from all the other Indians who have post graduate degrees and work in technology?
Discussions on this forum suggest that social work and donations will not count heavily in your favour

Also I'm not sure what it means by being one of the top 200 companies in Singapore.
How do you even know what the top 200 companies in Singapore are? :D Seems like you just picked that number out of the hat. LOL
Also, you don't say, you are working at the top company so in theory you could be working at the 200th ....

Thanks for the feedback and I appreciate your comments.

The intention was not to say that I work for top company. It was merely mentioning that I work for a good brand. But I understand that the chances are not that great and acknowledged the same.

Difficult to say. getting PR is like a ballot. I was in Singapore for only 2+ years, engineering industry, with salary much lower than yours but was granted within months. Others have their PR application pending for over a year with similar background

When did you get yours?
What ethnic group are you?
