    I am Deepak 29 years old. I have buy 7 mutual schemes – DSP BlackRock Micro Cap Fund – Regular Plan(1000), Birla Sun Life Frontline Equity Fund(1000), ICICI Prudential Focused Bluechip Equity Fund (G)-1000, Canara Robeco Emerging Equities Fund – Regular Plan – 1000, Tata Balanced Fund – Regular Plan – 1500, Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund – Regular Plan – 1000. As there are so many mutual fund schemes I have purchased now I am going to close Canara Robeco Emerging Equities Fund – Regular Plan – 1000, and put all the amount of this scheme in DSP BlackRock Micro Cap Fund – Regular Plan(1000) and will continue with only DSP BlackRock Micro Cap Fund – Regular Plan(1000); is am doing right thing? Because both the schemes are under small & mid cap category so instead of keeping both I will keep only one i.e., DSP BlackRock Micro Cap Fund. Also for Large cap category I have purchased Birla Sun Life Frontline Equity Fund (3000) & ICICI Prudential Focused Bluechip Equity Fund (G) – (1000) so I am going close one of them and continue with only one scheme kindly suggest which I should continue. My intention is to keep minimum schemes and take advantage of cumulative amount. Is I am going in right direction?
