In this paper, we propose a convolutional neural network model to recognize and classify handwritten and printed digits present in Sudoku puzzle, which is captured using smartphone camera from various magazines, and printed papers. Sudoku puzzle grid is detected using various image processing and filtering techniques such as adaptive threshold. The system described in the paper is thoroughly tested on a set of 100 Sudoku images captured with smartphone cameras under varying conditions. The
