How to install? Flashing TWRP is always easy. Nevertheless, you have to firstly unlock your Mi A1 bootloader. Next, you may also need to install Minimal ADB & Fastboot driver software on your computer so that it can recognize your device.
Next, turn off your phone and reboot into fastboot mode by pressing Volume down (-) and Power buttons simultaneously until the fastboot logo appears. Once done, now connect your phone to computer using its USB data cable. Rename the downloaded twrp .img file into recovery.img, and then issue following commands in Windows PowerShell on command prompt window:
fastboot boot recovery.img flash twp-installer.zip
Finaslly, reboot to recovery and check if twrp is there. Otherwise, if not (100% chances), issue these command below – but reboot your phone into fastboot mode again:
fastboot set_active b fastboot boot twp.img flash twp-installer.zip
That’s it. Now try rebooting again into recovery mode by pressing Volume Up (+) and Power button simultaneously.

Unable to install OTA updates after installing TWRP recovery. Please help, How can i go back to stock recovery ?
Since Mi A1 is a newly released phone, I found no leaked stock recovery yet. Please be patient and we will post new update once the stock recovery becomes available. Meanwhile, you can update your phone through Fastboot ROM.
