Let your fiancÚ ask the respective marriage registrar in Colombo which papers you two need.

After the marriage, she can apply for an X entry visa. With that she can stay in India with you but will not be allowed to work. After two years of marriage, she can apply for an OCI card, with which she will be allowed to work. With the OCI card she has almost all rights like an Indian (but not allowed to vote or buy agricultural land e.g.).

I am not sure about getting the Indian citizenship. I think she has to stay legally for many years (7???) in India to be allowed to apply for it. Maybe others can tell you more about it. Why is the Indian citizenship important for you?
