Guessing the test is for the extended 450 km range Brahmos missile that Dr. S. Christopher mentioned in the India Today article by Jugal Purohit that was posted on BRF by N. Rao. Test date and exclusion zone length are broadly in line:

Many nuggets of information in that India Today article by Jugal Purohit:What has been the impact of India gaining a seat, last year, at the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) - a global club it courted for years before being finally let in?
The man who answered was none other than the boss of Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), Dr S Christopher. He chose the Indo-Russian supersonic cruise missile BrahMos to make his point.
"The immediate impact," he said, "would be seen on the BrahMos whose range will be increased from 290km to 450km". The date chosen for the test is March 10 he said.
