I am travelling to Singapore with my child (both are Permanent residents of Singapore , Indian Nationality ) whose passport is due to expire in March 2018. I am travelling by air India.

I know that Singapore imposes the 6 month passport validity rule for visitors. But I am not sure about how this rule is applicable for permanent residents.

Will Air India let my child board?

In order to find out which documents are required, you can run a Timatic search. Using your child's information:

Document Validity:

Passports and other documents accepted for entry issued to residents of Singapore must be valid on arrival.

Since your child is a resident of Singapore, they do not require 6 months validity on their passport. Timatic is the system which airlines use to check document validity, so you are unlikely to face problems with Air India.
