- Oct 2010: I got green card.
- Oct 2013: Moved to India with the same employer (Indian office) with re-entry permit.
- Feb-Mar 2014, Sep 2014, Feb 2015: Traveled to US for 2 weeks before completing 6 months.
Can I be eligible for applying US citizenship 90 days before Oct 2015?
You must not have been absent for six months or more continuously during the qualifying period of time, five years or three as later explained, and must have been physically present in the US for 30 months out of the last five years. Do the math and if you meet the above, you meet the physical presence requirement for naturalization. Had you been naturalizing based on three year marriage to citizen, physical presence requirement would be 18 months out of the last three years.

Possibly, but I wouldn't hang my hat on a guess based on incomplete information. Go to a lawyer, present your complete travel history and get proper advice.
You might be eligible, talk to an immigration lawyer in private and discuss your status to confirm. All the best.
Dates are important for mathematical calculation of whether you satisfied the physical presence requirement and the length of stay abroad, however equally important is the purpose of stay abroad and your intention to maintain residency in the U.S. These factors have to be discussed before eligibility considered.
