You have too many schemes in your portfolio. Also, it lacks focus. A long-term equity investors is typically asked to invest mostly in multi cap schemes. He can also add large cap schemes if he want to diversify and reduce the overall risk your portfolio. Diversification is meant to spread your investments across different assets to reduce risk and optimise returns. Investing small amounts across too many equity schemes do not result in diversification. It often results in diluting your portfolio and reduce overall returns.

You are currently investing in two large & mid cap scheme, three small cap schemes, a technology or IT scheme, mid cap scheme, large cap scheme, multi cap scheme, focused multi cap scheme, value scheme. Among these, large & mid cap schemes, mid cap schemes, small cap schemes, technology schemes are not in line with your risk profile. These schemes are not meant for moderate risk-takers. They are meant for aggressive investors with a large risk appetite and ability to withstand extreme volatility.

Reassess your risk profile. If it is indeed moderate, make sure that your portfolio is mostly in multi cap schemes. As said earlier, you can also take small exposure to large cap schemes if you want to reduce the overall risk in your portfolio through diversification. Also, you do not need 11 schemes in your portfolio. Three or four schemes are enough for most regular investors.

If you are new to mutual funds and not clear about basics of investing, seek the help of a mutual fund advisor . Invest for a few years, learn more about investing, gain experience and confidence before taking charge of your investments.
