But the question is Why issue a 75Km no go zone when the fired projectile is just going to cover 10% of the area. Plus note the shape of NAVAREA warning, it looks something with a single point origin but a dispersed splash zone.

As I said , I am just making a speculation ...... By all probability , the first one in OP will be Pinaka .

A tactical nuclear missile! Or probably testing a biological warhead that could spread Ebola in Pakistan!! :P :D

Relax man, it's most probably testing of a missile's new propellant at short range.
Or was it a NOTAM by the IAF in anticipation of a crashing jaguar/su30?
