Nvidia gpu generally perform better with intel platform so the processor in my mind is i3 8100 (9k /-).you can also get an i5 8400(13.5k /-). Gtx 1060 is better paired with i5 8400. Since the budget is limited i suggest an i3 8100.
I hope you find this helpful.

I appreciate your answer but AMD provide much more cores and good clock speed in very low prices so I am thinking about any AMD processor

It is not true that nvidia cards inherently perform better with intel. A Ryzen 1600 is a balanced pairing with a 1060. What is your budget for a CPU? And a link to an online store you plan to buy from would be helpful, if you plan to buy it online. I wouldn't go much lower than a ryzen 1500x, even that may hold back a 1060 in more cpu heavy titles at say 1080p.

anything lower than ryzen 5 1600 means coming down to a quad core processor. thus ryzen 5 1400 or ryzen 5 1500x or ryzen 5 2400g could be you options. ( if you seriously want a hexa core processor i suggest you wait and collect more money , it will be fruitful. :D)(i am a fellow budget gamer too :p)
