No Knight Step Sudoku (Daily Sudoku League #153)

It was year 2000+ when I started solving puzzles seriously and internet was luxury in India at that time. Internet started becoming affordable in around 2004 in India and that time if I wanted to solve any puzzles online then was the only website which contained almost all the puzzle variations in bulk to be solved online. Today this site has grown even bigger. For any Puzzle and Sudoku enthusiast I recommend this website very strongly. Moreover many of the readers wanted to solve the Sudoku puzzles appearing on my blog online. So now you can solve some of these puzzles online at Sudoku Variations page
Coming to today's puzzle, there were many puzzles which I could had posted today. However No Knight Step Sudoku is the Sudoku type which is going to appear in forthcoming round of World Puzzle Federation Sudoku Grand Prix. So I thought to publish this Sudoku type for the practice to this championship. 
No Knight Step Sudoku is also known with another name Anti Knight Sudoku. Both the names are famous and used in different Sudoku Championship. Here I keep using both the names for this type of puzzles. Today's puzzle is having narrow solving path and will be fun solve for the experienced players. However new players may find this Sudoku tough.
One more change I am doing starting today is that file name of the Sudoku image will contain the timings of Prasanna. This is time he took while testing this puzzle. Prasanna is currently ranked 7th in 2015 World Sudoku Championship. So you can compare your timings with the one of the best Sudoku player in the world. From this timing one can also guess the difficulty level of the puzzle. I am constantly looking for feedback to improve my puzzle creation skills as well as this website. Do keep sending my your valuable feedback.  
This No Knight Step Sudoku I am posting in The League of Extraordinary Ladies & Gentlemen as 153rd puzzle in this series.
