Palindrome Sudoku Puzzle (Fun With Sudoku #364)

There are not many Palindrome Sudoku puzzles that I have created. My last Palindrome Sudoku published on this website was "Palindrome Sudoku (Daily Sudoku League #92)" published in February 2015. However recently I have created some Hybrid Sudoku puzzles for the practice of the UK Sudoku Championship 2018 like "Consecutive Pairs-Palindrome-Hybrid Sudoku" and "Palindrome-Extra Region Sudoku Puzzle" which contained Palindrome Sudoku puzzles. As this championship is not having any Hybrid Sudoku puzzles, so I was requested to post the individual Sudoku type for the practice of this Sudoku competition. So here I am publishing this Palindrome Sudoku in the Fun With Sudoku Series as the 364th Sudoku Puzzle in this Series.

Rules of Palindrome Sudoku Puzzle

Standard Sudoku Rules apply. Additionally the digits in the squares with the line form palindromes, i.e. they read the same from both directions.

Thanks for the feedback. There are two observations in this Sudoku which will help to solve this Palindrome Sudoku puzzle quite fast.
1. R5C2,R2C5 and R5C8,R8C5 can contain the digits which are at the corners of the central box.
2. R4C1,R9C4 can contain only the digit which appears either at R8C2 or R7C3.
Observe this Palindrome Sudoku carefully to understand these two deductions.
