Consideration of trainee period in eligibility of gratuity

I have joined the organisation on 09.02.2017 as trainer officer. During training period I was receiving stipend after deduction of professional tax.

After completion of trainee period of one years, I was under for probation for six months, in which I was receiving salary after deduction of professional tax and provident fund. After six months of probation I got confirmation

Whether period of one year would be considered for eligibility of 5 years of Gratuity

Dear Vivek,

Gratuity is a monetary payment made by an employer to an employee in appreciation of his or her service to the company. When an employee leaves a position after working for the same company for at least 5 years, the employer pays a gratuity. Therefore I am sorry to say that you are not eligible for the gratuity.

Dear Aryan Raj 

I am still on the jobs. 5 years would be completed by next month. After that would I be eligible for gratuity or only 4 years would be considered i.e. one year of trainee period would not be counted
