Question (Networking issue?) High ping on specific servers

I live in India (Jaipur to be more specific) and I am getting high ping on servers specifically located in singapore. This problem has started occouring about 2 days ago. I tried pinging other servers located elsewhere and they all are giving the usual ping. But whenever I ping a singaporean server I get an unusual ping of 190-200 ms (I usually get about 70-80 ms). My internet connection is working fine. Other people living in India are getting their usual 70-80ms ping but I am the only one getting the 200 ms. I tried the following:
-Restarting computer, router
-Pinging the server from two different networks (which have different ISPs)
-Pinging the server from two different devices
But it didnt help. . Please help me why this is happening. I posted this issue here because I think this is a network related problem in my area.

Use a trace route program to see where the high pings are occurring. If in Windows, open command prompt and type: tracert url or ip , if linux use the command traceroute instead.

You'll receive an ouput that shows 3 ping times to each "hop" in the path.

I put in the command and It shows the following output (picture attached). I dont understand a lot but i think my ISP (airtel broadband) is working fine and the problem starts occouring at the last 3. What does this mean?

Yep, it means that the 3rd hop outside your home network is having problems. You can contact your ISP and let them know, but I don't know if that's their network, or the next carrier upstream.

If I wait long enough will the problem get sorted out by itself or do I need to inform them? Because two different ISP connections are having the same problem, It might not be their fault

Run trace routes from each, you'll likely find the problem starts at the same node. Report your findings to both ISP's, save the output into a text file for reference. The squeaky wheel gets the grease, so to speak

I don't play games, but got you some info.

Your server probably is not in Singapore. IP Geo location info is not always accurate.

You probably want to connect to the servers that are closer to your city.
