Credit counseling Singapore tells $150k earner repay $100k of $600k debt is enuff???!


Credit counseling Singapore seems to say that bankrupt can be discharged and just have to repay $100k of $600k loan, even if they are now earning $150k p.a. and use salary to buy condo???!!!

Can somebody explain if CCS standpoint is that only token repayment of loans is necessary and that people should now play fast and loose with loans taken from others since only 16.7% repayment of principal borrowed is expected/ necessary???!!!
