Possible Bengal Lancer uniform?

The attached photo is of my 2x great grandfather Wilfred Stephens who was a Royal Engineer with the British Army having been commissioned to Fiji in 1875 to survey the new capital for Fiji.

The photo we were told is a Bengal Lancers uniform when he apparently served in Ceylon, India before 1875. At this stage we have no dob, dod or parents and siblings for this man but have been told he is from Yorkshire but have no record of this taking place let alone being born there.

Any idea as to dating and where this photo could have been taken, uniform identification etc...
