Means they increase the range ? or just for safety if the missile overshoot the designated target area?
Yeah most probably there is a safety buffer area between impact point and the edge of restricted air & naval space. So the test range is same for now.
However it should NOT be assumed that 2750 km is the maximum possible range of this system, it might be 3000 km but being under-stated to not threaten our friend in the Middle East.

But most of the middle east already under the range but i think Pakistan tries avoid Israeli propaganda to not mention or test full range.

the assumed diameter and length you can easily estimate the full range which probably 3500 Kms to 4000 kms by using maximum range trajectory .

That's shouldn't be the case because if you launch Shaheen-III (2750km range) from the Western Balochistan, it can reach Tel Aviv, Haifa, Jerusalem, and even in Mediterranean sea---which means that the system already covers entire Israel in terms of range.

So why shouldn't we just test the system to its actual maximum range?

There are certain operational constraints in launching from the tip of the western horn of Balochistan. Despite the claim by Lt. Gen. Kidwai, Pakistan can strike Andaman & Nicobar only from the south-eastern tip of Sindh (with 2750 km range)...which is again operationally very difficult.

Testing it at 3000-3200 km would mean that Pakistan has attained the capability to strike from the comfort of its operational mobility space of strategic weapons in the south, anywhere in Balochistan.

by reducing the Payload , we can increase the Range right ?
so technically if we say that with less payload S3 can reach to far end's of ME .. so its not wrong right ?

It doesn't works like that. Warheads and re-entry vehicles are of standard and fixed specifications. They cannot be modified at anybody's wish. Changing any parameter of this magnitude will result in a new variant of the missile, requiring higher than expected R&D.
