Gratuity amendment - eligibility

Dear Lawyers, Greeting of the day, I was working in a bank (for third party payroll) which works for 5 days a week, and resigned recently, I have completed more then 4 years and 190 days without any break in services, As per the Act I downloaded from Which states that An employee who works for more then 190 days in his last year of services can be considered for Gratuity. Now my HR is denying the claim stating that Only person who works in a MINE is eligible for said act of 4 years and 190 days. and Banking field is not considered under the same. Kindly confirm whether I am eligible or not.

For me,  for gratuity atleast 4years and 240 days of service is required.

I have got to know that there is no such rules that bank made for itself regarding this act.

@Mr Om Prakash I am worried because they are adamant about the criteria and is stucked at 4 yr 240 day, not accepting the fact of the rule of 5 Days week.

HR mailed me there is recent amendment made which excludes every other instituion for criteria of 4 yr 190 day and only workers in mine field (under ground workers) are eligible. 

Is there any such amendments. pl update.
