Step 2: Copy Framaroot from your computer to your phone memory.
Step 3: Install Framaroot from the apk file.
Step 4: Choose “install Superuser” option inside Framaraoot.
Step 5: Select any of the exploits that appears in the app and wait for some time.
Step 6: If you see a “Success … Superuser and su binary installed. You have to reboot your device” message then you have successfully rooted your phone .
Step 7: If you see “Failed … Try another exploit if available” message then try selecting another exploit .

Download Root checker to verify if your phone is rooted or not .

You are on a custom ROM. Custom roms usually are rooted. So you shouldn't need to root.
Some custom roms have root access disabled by default and you can enable it by going into developer options.
Settings -> Developer options -> Root access. Select Apps and ADB.

If you do not see Developer options, enable it first.
Go to Settings -> About phone -> and tap on build number until you see the message that you are now a developer. (7-8 times)

You also clearly have a custom recovery if you are using a custom rom, so you can also flash SuperSu from recovery for example.

Are you sure it isn't rooted? I assume you have tried RootChecker (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ootcheck&hl=en) app.
If it says you are not rooted, you could try one more thing.

Go into custom recovery and flash the latest SuperSU.zip. This will definitely work,

I think there is something wrong with the root access. The RootChecker out put is "Sorry! This device doesnt have proper root access". Will try custom recovery mode. Thanks again for the guidance/help.
