All the best to all the finalists !

Now that all regional rounds are over, any chance if the sudokus from all rounds can be put on LMI if TOI allows ?

TSC puzzles are never posted on LMI due to some constraints. Otherwise, it would've definitely been made available.
You know how openly LMI works :-)

Best of luck to every one for finals.
Due to interesting concept this time it will be more fun, considering even top experienced people have to fight for 2 spots.

Hi Harmeet. The rules can be found in toi.in/sudoku. A city round can have at the max one experienced solver as qualifier and the National Finals can have at the max two experienced participants among the four selected. Here experienced category refers to a participant who has represented India in WSC A team or B team.

I just participate in online contests regularly. Creating Sudokus also can help with speed (but isn't a certainty).

The largest base would be this site itself, I think.
Archived beginners' contests - http://logicmastersindia.com/lmitests/downloads.asp?testType=10
Archived Monthly contests (higher difficulty, more variety, closer to the WSC format) - http://logicmastersindia.com/lmitests/downloads.asp?puzzleTypes=S

As you can see on the above link, there were 7 Sudoku Mahabharat rounds last year and that has been announced again this year, with dates to be released soon, so just keep tabs on the forum and participate in this year's 8 rounds, and also look into those archives and time yourself in an entire contest for practice. Solving an entire contest simulates the actual competition scenario way better than solving single Sudokus at random.

There is also the World Sudoku Grand Prix which unfortunately just got over this year but will start up again next year most likely in January. This is the site - http://gp.worldpuzzle.org/

If you are interested in just leisure time solving there are many great blogs by world class Sudoku authors which can be reached here - http://logicmastersindia.com/home/?g=links

You can also check GM Puzzles - http://www.gmpuzzles.com/blog/ It is largely a puzzle site but there are a good number of Sudokus too.

At the start I mostly just participated in LMI contests and downloaded older contests to time myself. I do puzzles too (and am more of a puzzle fan than Sudoku) but I don't think that has a huge correlation to my speed other than increasing my adaptability to newer variations.

Hi, This is R.chandrashekar from Bangalore i had particpated in TOI sudoku championship2015 which was held on 26th July @St.Patricks convention hall.,I was shocked to see my scores and time,I clearly remember that i had completed all the sudokus C1 to C6 and C7 correctly,but your score card shows that points as 0 for C1 and C2 but iam damn sure that i have completed all sudokus correctly(i doublecheckedit)., something has gone wrong while evaluating.I want my papers to be re-evaluated .And one more thing is that the time record shows as 60minutes in result, where as i had completed all the sudokus in 49min and 15secs i had noted down the timings as i submitted the papers to your representative and i saw him writing the timings also .Iam requesting you to re-evaluate my paper and let me the status of the same.

With best regards,
