Nikunj Saraf: Hello Kapil. As per your current portfolio & requirements, I suggest AMC & Category diversification, along with reshuffling your portfolio. It would be worth considering ICICI Pru Midcap Fund SIP in comparison to better schemes in the same category.
Your current monthly sip is sufficient for 2 CR Corpus without inflation adjustment. Your sip amount might need to be increased to 78k if you envision your corpus with inflation adjusted.
