I may be wrong but being the son of an indian father should get you indian citizenship automatically. You can apply for a passport if your father lives in India or visits frequently (basically you need an address) - then again, i can confuse you with things like you might need a ration card and all that but you could talk to a good lawyer or a passport agent. The fact that you have lived in India and your father is from India. That entitles you for citizenship. And i now nothing about singapore laws.
