Building A Corpus

To build a long-term corpus, all you need to do is invest regularly & track your portfolio…

I am 29 years old and building a mutual fund portfolio for 15-20 years to build Rs 3-5 crore. I am investing Rs 5,000 each in ICICI Prudential Focused Blue Chip Equity, HDFC Top 200 and HDFC Prudence. I would like to invest Rs 5,000 each in a multi cap and mid and small cap fund. Considering my existing SIPs, which funds do you suggest? Also is my approach and fund selection right to increase my investment by 10 per cent each year?
