Dear @Mirza usman,

if the 25b residence permission is the first residence permission you ever had in Germany, §9 of the german residence act applies. Usually you need 5 years with a residence permission to apply for permanent residence permit (exceptions for refugees academics). You find the law here:

In section 9 of the german residence act you'll find the requirements you need to fullfil when applying for permanent residence. Very interesting is also section 9b: This addresses counting residence periods.

It would be interesting to know what title / residence permission you've been holding the past 6 years.
