What's your profile? Race/nationality, job, income, length of stay, qualification, family?

You have not given enough information about where are you from, How long are you in SG, Your education, Single or married, Working as what, Salary, Work experience, etc.

The above are only few of the factors that are considered when a PR application is evaluated.

But no one knows, whether it is right timing or if your application will be approved. Good luck!

No, it's not a good time for you.

Triple your salary and try again in a few years, and/or marry a local and have a boy.

Wait for few more years and also till your salary crosses the 5K mark and then try again.

Also at the moment, downgrading of the pass from EP ->S Pass will not look good on your PR application.

What difference does it make? Your salary will max qualify for only Q1 pass. Also your salary you are not allowed to have a dependent wife or kids here, no matter what pass you have, and rightly so. So makes no difference to you anyways.

Have a SERIOUS think about whether Singapore is the right place for you in this life.

The Indian economy is booking and your money goes a LOT further there than here.

I mean this in absolutely sincerity.

Be careful you're not setting yourself up for a salary fall if you get PR. There's no guaranteed minimum wage for a PR.
