I am creating a buffer around my geometries using QGIS. The unit of the buffer is shown in degrees because the projection system is WGS84.

I need to change the projection system so that unit for buffer comes in metric system (I want to add 10-meter buffer).

Which projection system should I use? My shapefile contains geometries are from India.
