For that see the following pages from GATK:

Obviously there is no solution to all problems but these guidelines will hopefully put you on the right track.

what if I need to annotate them using vcftools, is there any thresholds to follow like MinDP, QUAL, GQ ?

Have you read the pages I linked?

yes, but GATK has different attributes for filtration, they are based on calculations...

I don't understand why you would need to annotate them using vcftools and can't use GATK filter guidelines, but sure, go ahead.
