Using DMAT will cost you a little amount every time a SIP is deducted but has the benefit that all your funds will be at one place. I don't trust agents. If you know where you want to invest, simply invest directly without any broker or DMAT.

Most of the mutual funds selected by you are good.

However you can also think about following funds:
Tax savings: Canara Robeco Equity Tax Saver, HDFC Taxsaver, Franklin India Taxshield, DSPBR Tax Saver and Fidelity Tax Advantage.
Equity diversified: Birla Sunlife Frontline equity fund, HDFC Top 200 Fund, DSP Blackrock Top 100 fund, Reliance Regular Savings – Equity, ICICI Pru Discovery Fund, DSP Blackrock small and midcap fund, Sundaram Select Midcap, HDFC Equity Fund and Sundaram S.M.I.L.E Fund

After DTC, ELSS investment won't be available for tax exemption. All ELSS mutual funds will be converted to normal equity mutual funds most probably. You may buy LIC Amulya Jeevan or ICICI iProtect term insurance. For medical insurance you may choose from Apollo Munich or Max Bupa.
