All funds selected by you are one of the best in their respective categories. You may go ahead with them.

There is no need to open a Demat account for buying mutual funds. Why you should pay 400-500 per year to maintain demat account, if you only need to trade in mutual funds. You may invest directly through AMC, or investment account (opened with savings bank account), or through nearby agent, or through online mutual fund trading websites like FundsIndia, FundSupermart and Moneysights.

There may be some charge levied by agent, demat account or bank as service fees. But if you go directly with AMC, there is no extra charge applied.

I won't suggest you to open an demat account with HDFC. My personal experience with their demat account and online trading website is pathetic.

I would also suggest you to read following pages too:

  1. How to transact in Mutual Funds online
  2. How to open a Systematic Investment Plan?
  3. Need best suitable Mutual Funds to invest
