Your current SIP of Rs 17,000 can generate a corpus of around Rs 40 lakh, assuming an annual return of 12% annually. Since we do not know about your other assets that may help you to fund your golden years, it would be difficult to advise the changes you need to make in your current portfolio mix. The current mix seems good, looking at the 10 years window.

  • 4.81%Annualized Return for 3 year
  • >3 years Suggested Investment Horizon
  • N.ATime taken to double money

I would ask you revisit your financial plan, look at how much money you need to maintain your lifestyle post retirement and take care of any emergencies. And once you do that math, you can revisit the current monthly investments to modify and increase the same accordingly.
