Thank you for the recovery. While the recovery is for Micromax in note 1 , i tried it on Micromax in 1 and it works successfully.
I ran into an issue where even after flashing the recovery, the phone was booting into stock recovery. But as it turns out i only had to press down volume down+ power key to boot into PBRP.
Also rooted the device by flashing magisk zip and installing magisk managaer app.

Does magisk works fine @shah.meet6338 ? How do you do coz i face the bootloop problem after flash magisk?
Yes. Magisk works just fine for me. But i didn't use the magisk zip that was provided with the recovery. I downloaded the magisk zip and flashed it through the recovery and installed the app afterwards ( i might have installed the app first though, i am not sure).
Have you taken backup through the recovery? I ran into bootloop issue after i flashed a custom rom but i had the backup so just restored it.

I am trying to flash a custom rom through PBRP but i am not sure which partition i should select when flashing?
The partition list shows
nvram,uboot,boot,recovery,logo,tee1,tee2,super(product,vendor,system)

i think i should flash the rom to system partition but the system partition doesn't show separately on the list.
