It seems, you are new to mutual funds. You are investing in too many schemes. When you are investing a small amount it is not possible to aim for a lot of diversification. Also, you are investing in midcap and small cap schemes that carry a lot of risk. They are suitable for aggressive investors, not moderate ones.

A moderate investor with a long-term investment horizon is typically asked to invest mostly in flexi cap funds. These schemes have the freedom to invest across market capitalisation and sectors. They are considered ideal for regular investors with moderate risk profile because the fund manager will have meaningful exposure to every happening sectors and market capitalisation.

You should seek the help of a mutual fund advisor. Don’t be adventurous and expose your investments to unwanted risk. Gain enough experience and confidence before investing on your own.
