Problem with both of those wheels is that neither can be fixed quickly and cheaply if a spoke breaks. Replacement spokes have to come from the factory and they're not cheap.

It seems on the internet though that most people prefer the Fulcrum Racing 5 over the Campy Scirocco 35, because they seemed to roll better probably because they were lighter; the Campy on the other hand is a deeper dish wheel which makes it stronger and thus stayed trued on rough surface streets.

That's all I can tell you, I have no personal experience with either of them.

RS10's and RS11's are inexpensive and available on the web. $117 for RS11's at Ribble and they offer cheap and/or free shipping to many countries. I don't know India's tariff/import duty schedule, but USA shipments under $800 are duty free.
