Any bros can advise whether can we get SCV to remove this since we are no longer using SCV.

Outside your boundary? If you say it’s from scv/ StarHub, then it will be where the lead-in coaxial cable for your property is tapping to. However it may not be just for your house and might be serving a few households. Currently cable services are until 30 June 2019. You can try contacting StarHub to see if they are willing to remove that after that date. But chances is unlikely unless IMDA requires them to remove all the cable infrastructure around Singapore which will cost millions of dollars. 

The most updated regulations does not require any coaxial cables in the lead-in pipes anymore. Even coaxial cabling in household shelter is no longer needed as well. However IMDA still requires every house to have internal coaxial cables being run even when there is no lead in coaxial cable. But I managed to obtain a waiver for the coaxial cabling by indicating that I would be providing additional cat 6 network points in place of the coaxial cables

Yeah, I agree that you call up Starhub and check. That is the best. 

I assume that the box is in a public area. So moving the box might affect the residents around the area. Furthermore, if it is built on a public area then I'm sure prior approval was sought from the relevant authority.

But hey, thanks for bringing this up.
