Should I invest more in small and midcap mutual funds

I want some advice regarding my investments. I am investing 50k per month equally distributed in 5 mutual funds - 1. ICICI Pru Focussed Bluchip, 2. SBI Large Cap, 3. ABSL Equity, 4. ABSL Small and Midcap, 5. L&T Midcap Fund. I am a Govt. employee and I do not have any immediate need of money in next few years. I have tried to pick funds with long term proven returns. Please help me with my investments. Also, we generally say that if we have long investment period, then only we should invest in small or midcap funds. Now, if I say that I am ok with my money locked for next 10 years, why I should be investing 100% in small or midcap fund to maximize returns. What is the possible downside?

How can I get the list of companies according to recent SEBI mutual fund category classification

1) My elder brother is interested to invest lump sum of 10 lakh rupees in mutual fund for long term. But confused in verities of funds, it will be helpful for him if you suggest any fund. Basically I am interested in searching a fund which is in large cap or mid cap and having MNC companies in his portfolio like Birla Tax Saver Fund 96? 2) SEBI have introduced a 100 companies lists for large cap category, 100 companies for mid and small cap categories, sir I want to see that list but I am unable to find it on SEBI website, can you suggest me the correct icon path on SEBI website or please send it's link? 3) Practically it is not possible for any mutual fund house to manage any amount without expense ratio. But on advisorkhoj website some funds are having zero expense ratio. It is very good to see the funds expense ratio and return separate on advisorkhoj website but in some funds expense ratio space there is " - " marks? 4) Is there any branch website of advisorkhoj which is related to share market?

Am I investing in the best mutual funds

You are really creating an investment era by contributing significantly to all sectors of investors, thus playing a vital role towards fulfilling dreams of masses. Kindly keep up the good work. As conveyed earlier, I am a retired Technical Director from Govt. of India Deptt. Just aged 53 Years. Took Voluntary Retirement with no standing liabilities. I have invested my retirement proceeds in Debt and Equity Sectors as per attached Excel File. I am investing Rs 1,50,000 annually in PPF also. My Aim is to grow them significantly via investing in High Quality Mutual Funds over a long period of time. I would request you to kindly go through the attached Excel sheet and suggest me :- 1. Do you suggest and recommend to exit any Mutual Fund and invest in some other Mutual Fund, 2. This is my hard earned money, so safety of the money with quality growth is my aim, 3. Presently investing around Rs 1 Lac via STP on monthly basis in Equity Mutual Fund. Started all Investments from Feb 2016 in Direct Growth Mode, 4. Liquid Funds hold amount for investment in Equity fund only for 2-3 Months STP. Whether I should keep on investing even by using my funds from Debt Fund as I have read in your posts that investment in equities should continue for atleast 5 years to reap benefits through significant capital appreciation. I feel if I continue STP for 5 Years, I will have to use amount of Debt Funds, doing so will result in zero balance in Debt Fund, 5. Any Change in Mutual Funds Schemes (Exiting / Entering like investment in Gold ETF etc), 6. If any Change in Mode or amount of STP is required may kindly also be conveyed, 7. Kindly go through the details furnished and suggest appropriate line of action along with Timelines to create huge capital appreciation. I am an aggressive investor?
