Classic Sudoku (Mini Sudoku Series #25)

Recently we selected Indian Junior Team for 1st World Junior Sudoku Championship to be held in China later this year. During this selection process, I asked participants how they practice for Sudoku. Most of them said that by newspaper. Some said they do daily Sudoku of Times of India (TOI) newspaper and some said they do Sudoku in "The Hindu" newspaper. Personally I don't like Times of India newspaper Sudoku.  Many of times Sudoku in TOI contains multiple solutions and puzzles are not of great quality. However I like The Hindu newspaper's Sudoku of the day. Here the Sudoku is rated from difficulty levels from 1 to 5 and quality of puzzles is also taken care. Anyway at the end it is individual choice but I strongly advice to avoid Times of India newspaper Sudoku because of its poor quality. 
Anyway coming back to today's puzzle I was trying to create a Mini Classic Sudoku which contains less than 10 given hints with symmetrical hints. Many attempts to create Mini Classic Sudoku with this condition is failed. Today's puzzle is one of the failed attempt. At the end it exceeded number of hints by 2 to make total given hints to 12. However this Sudoku could be very good practice for a beginners.
This Classic Sudoku I am posting as 25th Sudoku in Mini Sudoku Series.
