You are 53 years old. That means you hardly have five or seven year to your retirement. It is extremely important to know your financial details before offering personal advice. Since you have not shared any details with us, it is not possible to comment on your investments.

We will not recommend investing in equity mutual funds with a five year horizon. Especially since you are on the verge of retirement. You should invest in equity schemes only if you can stay invested for a long period. Equity or stocks can be extremely risky in the short term. You should hire a financial planner or mutual fund advisor to get detailed advice.
