England batted with confidence in the morning session with Stuart Broad hammering 37 in 21 balls and they then reduced India to nine for two when rain brought about an early lunch.
The remaining eight wickets fell after the break as England powered home, Chris Jordan taking four for 18, James Anderson two for 16 with Broad and Chris Woakes claiming one apiece.
Stuart Binny top scored with 25 not out and Virat Kohli (20) was the only other player to reach double figures.
England resumed the day 237 ahead and quickly set about extending their lead, taking advantage of plenty of charity offered by India.
After Root reached his century, Jordan fell early, caught behind off Ishant Sharma for 20 before Root and Broad added 63 runs for the ninth wicket in very short order.
India peppered Broad, who was hit by Varun Aaron at Emirates Old Trafford, with short balls but the left-hander didn't flinch.
Instead he struck five fours and a six and his 37 occupied just 21 balls before he was caught by Virat Kohli off Sharma.
Root continued to score at pace and ended just short of scoring 150 when Anderson (1) was trapped in front by Ravichandran Ashwin.
In all, he faced 165 balls, hitting 18 fours and one six while Sharma took four for 96, Ashwin three for 72, Aaron two for 153 and Bhuvneshwar Kumar one for 86.
England struck early when India came out to bat when Anderson had Murali Vijay trapped in front for two and worse was to come when Gautam Gambhir set off for a single and was sent back by Cheteshwar Puara.
With rain falling, Woakes hit the stumps to run him out for three and an early lunch was called with India already struggling.
After the break, England needed just 23.1 overs to take the remaining eight wickets. It was a procession, set up by excellent bowling, assisted by brilliant catching and a lack of application from India.
Pujara (11), Kohli (20), Ajinkya Rahane (4), Ashwin (7) and Kumar (4) were all caught behind the wicket, with Gary Ballance's one-handed grab diving forward to remove Rahane the pick of a good bunch.
MS Dhoni flicked Woakes straight to Sam Robson at short leg to register a four-ball duck and another run out saw off Aaron when he failed to return for a second run, taking on Moeen Ali in the deep.
And with Binny stranded at the other end, Ali took a simple catch when Sharma (2) fended off a Jordan bouncer to complete the formalities.
