The March Dossier deals with conversations on Indian democracy, the debate concerning India-Pakistan relations, political developments in Goa, the role of female Indian politicians in the upcoming Assembly elections, critical statements by a former Indian Vice-President on journalism and nationalism, the political journey of young politician Alka Lamba, and finally a glimpse at Odisha state ahead of the Lok Sabha and Assembly elections.

The dossier covers foreign visits by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to the Maldives and her address at the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, the first by any Indian leader.
