Can I invest in balanced funds and do STP to equity funds for retirement corpus

I have been investing in SIP for past 2 years accumulating around 5 lacs till now. My plan is to invest around 25 lacs in balanced funds across multiple AMCs and start STP of around 4,000 to 5,000 to diversified and SMC funds for 4 years after a wait period of 1 year to avoid exit loads. Strategy is to invest around a sum of 35 lacs over 7 years and hold for around 15 years after that. Will that be sufficient to accumulate a retirement fund of 5 to 7 Crores.
