Is this Zebronics (ZEB-500W) 500W PSU good enough for a GTX 1060
(ASUS GTX 1060 6GB ROG STRIX OC or ASUS GTX 1060 6GB Dual-fan OC).

My current system specifications are :

Motherboard : Intel DH61WW
Monitor : Samsung LS22F350

500w is plenty for your system: https://outervision.com/power-supply-calculator There are other PSU calculators out there too BTW, but most come close to each others findings.

As far as the Zabronics... This is all that came up for customer reviews: http://www.amazon.in/Zeb-500W-Power-Supply-Platinum/product-reviews/B00F0J4I9U/ref=dpx_acr_txt?showViewpoints=1 It's kind of an unknown company.

Not sure what your budget is but some safer options may be:

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151189 550w $69 after $10 rebate
 
You really should consider getting a better quality PSU than Zebronics. A quality PSU is very important as it can damage your hardware. I would suggest a Seasonic or EVGA PSU. As for the wattage, 500 watts is more than enough

I would select the cheapest 1060 of the two as both are equally as good.

I would not use that power supply unless I had no choice.
22a on 12V for a total of 264 usable watts and is a dead giveaway that the PSU is inferior and this is their "platinum series"
the card itself will draw 120W.
 
The Antec vp 450 p is the best choice really. This is coming from a guy who is in India.
U also have the seasonic industrial ss500 for a bit more in Amazon.
If you can get the corsair cxm 450 or cx450 2017 edition from a local retailer, that's also fine.
Don't go for the tr2. Not a good unit.

I need a PSU which is 500 to 600w as I might upgrade other components in the future.

 
^ as lucky has already said , you are better with a very good quality 450w unit than a poor quality 600w.

Upgrade other components in the future ??
Not really going to matter , power draw across base components & CPU's won't vary much if at all from what you're running now.

So it won't make a difference in power consumption if I upgrade my processor or motherboard in the future? https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371102&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-VigLink-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=6146992&SID=j730engm50002urt00053, is this PSU good?

Ok, thank you dude. I will think about it after seeing if I can get a good quality PSU for a cheaper price in some local shop.
