Ans: You don't need to invest in so many schemes. There is a lot of overlap in your mutual fund portfolio holdings if you look at individual scheme's portfolios. So just investing the same monthly amount in up to 4 funds would be more than sufficient. You can pick one from Largecap Index Fund, 1-2 from a Flexicap/Large&Midcap Fund, 1-2 from Mid/Smallcap funds and that should be sufficient. In general, most investors are better off avoiding thematic/sectoral funds.
