Please provide your suggestions
For Singapore, you do not need to carry any cash from India. You can use the credit card there and can withdraws Singapore Dollar from ATM. Before drawing cash from the ATM, please check whether they are charging service fee or not. Few bank charges service fee and few banks do not. You will find SBI ATM there.

Tickets of all the attractions can be booked online.

I would suggest the following itinerary for you:

Day 1 : After taking rest after arrival, go to Jurong Bird Park. You can spend the evening at Clarke Quay
Day 2: Singapore Zoo, River Safari and Night Safari. All these attractions are at same place, so you should cover all three attractions in one day In my personal opinion, River Safari and Night Safari are not that great but you still do those just to tick the box
Day 3 : Universal theme park at Sentosa island
Day 4 : S.E.A Aquarium at Sentosa island followed by Laser and light show "Wings of Time" (It happens twice - one at 7 pm and another at 8 pm. Do not miss it)
Day 5 : Shopping at Orchard Road followed by the visit to Gardens by the Bay. (There is no entry fee for Gardens by the Bay but for two attractions, there are separate tickets. In Gardens by the Bay "light and sound show" takes place twice a day at 7 pm and 8 pm. Please try to attend one
Day 6 : Choose from (a) roaming in Little India (b) Roaming in China Town (c) visit to Merlion (in the main city and not the Sentosa one. The Sentosa one can be covered in Day 4) (d) Singapore Flyer (e) Marina Bay Sands Skypark observation deck.

Had your return ticket not booked in early morning of Day 7, I would have recommended to spend 4 days in Singapore and spend 2 days in Bintan Island (an Indonesian island which can be reached from Singapore via ferry service)

Few queries
1. Need help in Hotel booking- Please suggest best hotel for family stay with budget around (4000-8000) per night.
For easy access to Indian food try to stay in Little India MRT or Farrer Park MRT or Mustafa. The area is near to most attractions and has a lot of Indian food options.

2. Do we need cash or Citibank visa & master card will work there
You can survive without any cash here. Everyone accepts visa card. Just to be sure you may carry few hundred dollars (200-300$) cabs/restaurant/street vendor/food courts/etc will accept visa.
Just buy MRT (metro) card when you arrive and recharge them as you need for metro use.

3. How to book trip tickets for Universal studio or Zoo and other places
Booking directly with universal studio website online will be expensive. Check klook for any offers. I have been buying ticket from a local agent for many years now(named Wendy : +65-9778-6014). Her is rate is cheaper. She can sent tickets via email or whatsapp. You can contact her via whatsap and ask for prices. She can also meetup and give tickets. Check prices with her before buying.

I will reach Singapore on 27th OCT early morning around 7-8am. I have made below itinerary please provide your inputs

Day 1 – I will reach Singapore airport early morning & then to hotel and will take some rest and start out by visiting Night Safari.
Goto Jurong bird park and Singapore zoo. Skip Night safari. On day one, as you will be travelling overnight, i will say keep it light.
