The gahmen don't care whether or not you are paying CPF as it's your own money and you'll get it back sooner or later, e.g., you are not contributing anything to the government coffers. What they want to see are three years of "Singapore" Income Tax returns from a Singapore employer. without those, the odds are against you, frankly speaking.

You're joking right ?? Really ?? Citizenship application just because you contribute CPF to your own coffer !!
In that case, any Ah Pek , Ah Neh and Abang can apply by ring fencing this 3 years income tax and must be living and residence of SG for 5 year before applying SG citizeship.
You think Gahmen that GONG ? C'mom just think for a second? Whatever you can think of, they can think further and better !!
Ah...., do not worry your child is a Sger if you chose to , just you will not be if you chose to go thru this path and the child cannot sponsor you at all.

You won't make it worse for the locals, you'll just make it worse for the PR who actually wanted to settle down here.

However, I've hear that those who are from the sub-continent and have left Singapore for a year or more while on their 1st re-entry permit, will not have their REP renewed when it's time as they have already shown that they are just abusing the system. Sounds like a good idea to me.

You need to supply three years of Income Tax and judging by your stay in India, you aint go that. How can it be worse for the local? You are only doing it to yourself and your fellow countrymen trying to apply EP and PR.
So thanks for helping the Gahmen to make a good case on why many of you got kick out from SG. This is the very reason before the election what I was saying on FT from sub continent has no bloody commitment to the country they gotten the PR. You are the classic PR Abuser from SUB Continent
