STFC is well-managed company with proven track record, financials too are satisfactory. India’s economic growth, interest rate scenario, Government policies are few factors which determine the well-being of the STFC’s growth in future.
For an individual, STFC is giving higher interest(235 basis points more ,option 1, and reserved individual) than top bank FD rates.
One should definitely allocate some portion of its debt portfolio to this NCD.
NCDs from private players are a tad riskier than banks FDs and that’s why they give more return and therefore allocation should depend  on ones risk appetite and liquidity requirement (in rare cases there may be delay in interest payment due to technical reasons ).
