University dropout with lowish salary, and from the unfavourable race.
After four rejections, you should give up and hope they renew your EP.

I did a MBA but still they are rejecting. If my household income increase will i get a chance and if we do some volunteering in NLB or any organization will they consider?

I have paid income tax return for 2 yrs. Please let me know how i can boost up my profile inorder to get an approval.

Since you can't do anything about your race, wait until all the following is true:
- You have been married at least 2 years.
- Your salary is above S$8000/month (or whatever the P1 threshold is at the time)
- You have a son (for the Singapore military - girls don't help!)
And for heaven's sake, stop re-applying in short intervals without real change in your particulars - every unsuccessful application counts agains you!

Double your income and wait for your third tax assessment.

You should learn to read English also. If you read any of the guidelines for PR, you'd know to wait for your third tax assessment.

How long did they take to reject your latest PR application? All my higher profile Indian friends who applied, have their applications pending for 9 months.

@ ABCDEF

For heavens sake stop reapplying every 6 months and get the message from the Govt. You make the rest of your countrymen look so pathetic.

You are so young and India has so much opportunity, if you do the maths at SGD 50K salary you simply wont save enough in the long run. Singapore gets very expensive for foreigners once you have kids and the Govt is making it difficult by the day. property prices have sky rocketed beyond the reach of the average person.

When I left India almost 20years ago Singapore salaries were 10x of India. Its simply not the case now. My nephews in India are already earning about SGD 35-40K in India with similar qualifications as you stated. They haven't taken offers of SGD 80K in Singapore because after deducting costs there simply no savings to be had.

Please do your maths before you go begging for PR, remember you commit any future sons to NS without any assurance that you will be given Citizenship.

Or those future sons getting citizenship even after doing NS as well. Doing NS is not a guarantee of the gift of citizenship.

Unless your wife is Singaporean Chinese with a degree and making over 5K/mo in her own right. Then maybe in a year or two.

@ABCDEF

What exactly did the rejection letter say?... did said anything like "apply after XXX months" ?

and my 2cents
- May you should try getting a techie job for your wife as well, and wait for a years tax return before applying

Also you sound a bit too desperate for a guy who have an EP valid until Oct 2015... is PR a backup plan (so that you can move elsewhere) ?
Good judgement comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgement.
