The Indian army in the 90s would have still been using mostly Soviet kit from the 70s, though still had plenty of Ishapore-made FALs (hell, their police still carry Lee-Enfields and Greener shotguns). I doubt if the INSAS ever made it to Sri Lanka.
The INSAS couln't have made to Sri Lanka because it wasn't in service back then.

I also find that G3s and FNCs and the L1A1s were widely used during the 1980s and the early 1990s. G3s and FNCs are still widely used today. The M16A2s and M4s are just used by the Special Forces though.
