Hi @AjitYadav 

Could you give more information on what other operational layers you have in the map for this analysis?

I Have projected population data sedac (Projected population density of India, 2020) data in tiff formate and I have created a 10 km buffer map Now I would like to calculate the population in the buffer zone.

What inputs do you have (from which population data would be extracted)? Screenshots would help.

unless the population is uniformly spread out across the landscape, making the assumption that you can translate "population density" to "population" within the buffer is a conceptual stretch,  You also have floating point values for density which rules out "Tabulate Area" and "Zonal Statistics" or "Zonal Statistics as Table" would necessitate taking the average density, which might be ok if the buffer is relatively uniform.  Use density values with caution.  It would be better to acquire actual populations data on a polygon basis if it is at all possible.
