So if you are doing only waterfall development, and that's not going to change in the next two to three years, you may want to consider moving on, but that depends on where you are in life, your age, circumstances etc. If you work in a world of hybrid development styles (WAgile/Watergile?) it's certainly worth evaluating. In my organization, production support/maintenance has the most power and influence. In a lot of other organizations, it's the other way around, but that depends on your Agile/DevOps roadmap and maturity.

I have a few developers in my team who moved into a production support/maintenance role, and for them, they were much more appreciative of the development and support process, particularly when we are on a path to move towards DevOps. Some food for thought.
First of all, thank you for the advice! I知 a local uni grad and earn up 4.2k in NCS now.. basically you have mention exactly what I知 afraid of... It痴 more about the working circumstances or says the culture..

I知 under the waterfall development and everything is still kind of ok when it is about to get the code done.. The case is I知 afraid of once heading into maintenance then my colleagues with same level also including me will face a very tough challenge as we having a kind of political team lead who show dick face to all of us but be nice nice to higher rank.. can say the good thing here is our batch and our pm very supportive.. so I知 really confused about if I should move on alr..
