in this question we have taken the angular momentum about the point c but we can see that there has been a torque acting during the collision which tends to rotate the body of mass M .    this could have been true when we have taken any point in the line of momentum of  mass m because then the toque about that point is 0 as the line of force passes through it . But as shown in figure we have taken the point C to observe the angular momentum because the toque is acting about the point C

You can conserve angular momentum of rod + particle about any fixed pt in space

Is it true that this could only possible of we consider particle to be in our system then force during collision becomes internal and then torque becomes zero and angular momentum can be conserved then only

here it is so. But there can be a case where the net force may be non zero, but still angular momentum canbe conserved

But then that force may produce some net  torque so how angular momentum conservation can be applied

It may be possible in certain cases where force may acting on the system but we can conserve angular momentum about the point of the application of force about which there won't be any torque
