Not sure how the structure works but we do seem to get regional pricing? Cyberpunk 2077 was only $30 when ordering in Sri Lanka. While accessing through VPN, it showed ~$60 in US, Europe, UK etc. in their local currency, just checked to see if it was a Steam offer or regional pricing.
But sure, it'd really help to have LKR as well but low volume of purchases probably kept them from including it.
Also, us getting billed in INR on Origin, shown as Rs. is all the more annoying. Please do ask for LKR if you're opening a petition.

Sri Lanka is included in the south Asian pricing group. We get a lot of games discounted, including a number of AAA games such as Cyberpunk 2077

I don't think you understand how this works. Both countries have the same pricing, in India it's displayed in INR, not USD.

Yeah this is what happens most of the time. They think INR prices are same as LKR prices.

Seems you're right, we don't get the exact price as India. Some are cheaper for us, some are cheaper for them. Just cross checked with a VPN for current prices. $ prices given for LK.

MK 11 - $60 vs INR 1350
Monster Hunter World - $60 vs INR 3000
Cyberpunk 2077 - $30 vs INR 3000
FC New Dawn - $42.50 vs INR 2250
SoTR - $40 vs INR 3000
TW 3 Kingdoms - $38 vs INR 2700
X4 Foundations - $30 vs INR 2000

I don't think any region has all the prices lower than what we get. If you do manage to change the region to India, you have to be prepared for some games to go up on prices.

Done.

Also don't forget, they have way more game sales in India than SL so makes sense for them to cater to that market.
