The Company was incorporated in the year 1979 and is registered as a Deposit taking NBFC with Reserve Bank of India under section 451A of the Reserve Bank of India Act, 1934. STFC decided to finance the much neglected Small Truck Owner. Shriram understood the power of 'Aspiration' much before marketing based on 'Aspiration' became fashionable. Shriram started lending to the Small Truck Owner to buy new trucks. But it found a mismatch between the Aspiration and Ability.
