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

As if you are any better, replying to a post from 2020, for wont of anything more constructive to do.

I replied to this after long time, as just need to tell him the fact that he got in 2+years as he was sponsored by his wife who is 1) PR and 2) Chinese race which is preferred.

I found it difficult to say how they assess the application and the chances.

I got my marriage certificate in end 2018, 1.5 months later I applied under my wife's sponsorship for my PR (she was PR for only 1 year as well) and got approved within months. She is of Chinese race and me too (European citizen). She is a healthcare worker, so that might be the trick. And I earn more than here so considered sustainable income.
So wanted to tell him like dont say that getting PR is like a ballot. Many others might have got pr from their sheer hardwork and may not be lucky like him being sponsored by a local
