my chest routine as of now consists of the following:
Incline DB Bench Press
Flat DB Bench Press
Incline DB Flyes
Flat Bench DB Flyes
is there any point doing Incline Flyes & flat bench flyes in the same routine?
if no, which one should I stick to?

edit: I thought I read incline DB flies, flat dumbbell flies, then same thing again. Incline flies and Flat flies can be considered the same exercise if you may. For that matter, it will come down to if you feel you should be doing so much isolation. It just depends on your total volume. There's not really anything to worry about.
There's not really a reason to alternate them persistently with flat DB flies. For that matter, the clavicular is a transitionary muscle between the sternal and anterior deltoids. Doing incline flies incorporates the upper-chest, but if the shoulder muscles aren't incorporated, the upper-chest won't be tested much.
Your workout seems to mainly be working out the main pectoral muscles on the lower portion of the chest, and could benefit from some pressing movements.

3 exercises and 3 sets of 1 exercise are more than enough. Flat bench press targets your whole chest anyway. Different variations of bench press just hit chest under a different angle, no big difference.
An ideal chest routine in my opinion:
Flat Barbell Bench Press
Incline Dumbbell Bench Press
