Almost all people who I know, who have taken PR and then decided to move have given up PR, to take the CPF back. Most of them think its a big risk to keep money in CPF, if they are not staying here and hence the 1st thing they do is to give up PR and take the money out.sundaymorningstaple wrote:The demographics and the reality were not the same. Huge numbers of them took up PR and then went to Aus & Canada and tried to keep their PR here as a bolt hole. This inflated the demographic number here with people who were not here and created a false numerical shift because they tried to maintain a "bolthole" if their foray into 1st world countries collapsed or they didn't like it. Look at the numbers right here on this board over the 4.5 years you've been here. And what we get on the board is only the tip of the iceberg.
Also, the majority of abusers are not those that go to Aus & Can. The majority are those that just took up PR for fun and then when they dont see it worth staying here, go back to India.
