There are guides related to Rooting and CWM installation but are incomplete (For me atleast I Was unable to install CWM of my A500s IPS)
FOR BOTH XOLO A500S & XOLO A500S IPS MODELS
So here it is :

Rooting
1)Download Framaroot : Link
2)Install the .apk
3)Choose Install SuperSU
4)Then choose Boromir.It Will Display A Root Confirmation Message, Click On "OK" And Then "REBOOT" Your Device.
5)After Reboot You Will Find SuperSu Application In The App Drawer.

Installing CWM
1)Download MTKDroid Tool (V 2.5)Link
2)Download the Cygwin .dll files : Link
3)Driver Install
3a)For all the types of Pc's (X86,X64,etc)[Recommened]
--> Download Snappea : Link
-->Install it,connect your phone,the program will install the drivers of your phone. You can Uninstall the program.
3b)Except x64 PC's
Go to http://androidxda.com/download-xolo-usb-drivers ,Download and install your Driver
4)Extract the MTKDroid tool,Extract the Cywin .dll files (cyggcc_s-1.dll & cygwin1.dll ) and replace both the file in /MTKDroidtools/files
5)Open MTKdroidTools.exe ,Click on Root at the bottom right corner , On phone you will see permission request pop-up ,Click on Yes.
6)On MTKDroidTools,click on the "root,backup,recovery" tab,click on "Backup" option and your stock ROM will be backed up.
7)Now click on "To choose the boot.img file" radio button and click on "Recovery and Boot"
8)Now choose the boot.img you backed up,Click on every "ok'" that pops-up,Now your phone will restart to CWM Recovery
9)Done ! Now you have installed CWM

Need A Custom ROM for your Xolo A500s/A500s IPS ? Go here !
