This will walk you through rooting process of Android One phones

Code:
#include 
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this recovery
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
 */
Requirements:
Method 1:
  • Download SuperSU zip from here
  • Enter recovery
  • Go to Install zip --> adb sideload
  • Connect the phone to PC
  • Execute the following
    Code:
    adb sideload

This will root your phone. There are more methods to root these devices, new methods will be added once I get my hands on my phone

Thanks to @droidextra for testing root and recovery for Canvas A1. You will be seeing a video walk through of all this from him soon
