Singapore scholarship bond

I am a resident of Bangalore, India. I had entered into a scholarship agreement with a Singapore company in May 2003 for engineering studies in Singapore. They had paid for my studies between 2003-2007 after which I had to serve their company for 6 years.

I did not receive any employment offer from their side after this period and I left Singapore soon after. There is also a negative covenent which states that I will have to find alternative jobs only in Singapore (for the period of 6 years).

Now after more than 10 years since the agreement, they are asking for liquidated damages from the contract.
Though they have not yet served a legal notice, can I send a preemptive letter invoking the statute barred clause as it has been over 6 years since bond breach ?

A reply on this matter would be appreciated.

Your wisdom prevail upon you to not to send preemptive letter invoking 6 years period clause. Let your Singapore company send letter or legal notice you wait till such time and do not precipitate by sending preemptive letter that will create more complications for you to wage legal battle with Singapore company.
