    Axis Long Term Equity Fund: Rs 2,500
    DSP Equity Opportunities Fund: Rs 2,000
    DSP Midcap Fund: Rs 3,000
    Franklin India Taxshield Fund: Rs 2,500
    L&T Midcap Fund: Rs 2,000
    Mirae Asset Large Cap Fund: Rs 1,300

    Kindly suggest any corrections or additions to my mutual fund portfolio.

    Rishabh Parakh, founder, Money Plant Consultancy, responds:

    Since you are young and married, you need to first decide your financial goals and then create a portfolio to achieve those goals. The current mix, however, can be changed to include some of the funds which have a chance to perform better over a long period. You can replace DSP Equity Opportunities Fund and DSP Midcap Fund with Kotak Emerging Equity, ICICI Prudential Bluechip Fund or Axis Bluechip Fund. If the lock in period of three years has been completed for the ELSS schemes, then same can be redeemed and reinvested in a better multi cap or a mid cap combination.
