Rental market in Singapore / Discrimination against Indians
I have recently relocated from Hong Kong and permanently employed with Morgan Stanley Asia Ltd. This email is regarding my experience with the rental market in Singapore. Kindly excuse me if I have marked it to the wrong department and if needed guide me to the correct authorities.
I have recently tried to rent flats in the Newton/Novena area and have been told by the Agents that the Landlord doesn't want any Indians. If the incident would have happened at a couple of places, I could have understood that it might be due to a bad prior experience. But it seems to be very common in the mentioned area and has some racist undertones to it. I believe Singapore is one of the best countries to live in for expats and the government would take all the necessary steps to ensure that such kind of discrimination doesn't flourish. It is my sincere request that the authorities take appropriate action to bring this to end
