I have tried numerous moisturizers - cosrx snail mucin, Glow recipe , Vichy mineral 89, clinique 72 hour moisture surge , kielhs. When I compare my skin without a moisturizer, I find myself getting oily near T-zone after 3-4 hours whereas with a moisturizer i turn oily in 1.5-2 hours!! what am I doing incorrectly!!!

I would suggest, instead of a moisturizer, a serum that contains a high concentration of hyaluronic acid and/or ceramides. Some great options are The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 or the CeraVe Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Serum.

Could be your hormones and lifestyle (stress, diet, poor sleep, inadequate exercise) causing your skin to be super oily. What's the rest of your routine? What's the climate like in the place you are now?
You can try setting powder on the oily parts. Is your skin is dry and tight without moisturizer? If so, continue with moisturizer. Otherwise you can skip for a few days.
Salicylic acid may be helpful. E.g. Cosrx bha liquid, Paula's Choice BHA, Caudalie serum (forgot the name), Stridex
