If the designation is mentioned in the appointment letter or appraisal letter, you can ask your HR to verify the error.
If not, go to the HR and communicate your problem. Tell the HR that you had been communicated that your designation is X and it is printed in the relieving letter as Y which is not to the mark of X. This would not only harm my future growth prospect but it also makes me look untruthful when I have communicated that I am at X designation.
Try to understand their point first and then you can explain and probe further. Pls note that be calm all the while...
Hope it helped :)

Pls take it as note for future reference that whenver you join a new organization, ask for appointment letter and ensure that it has your designation, joining date and CTC offered so that you can keep it for your reference. Also whenever there is any modification/appraisal of your salary/designation, ask your employer to give you an appraisal letter mentioning same. This is your right to claim and no employer can deny it.
The office might not have a practice to issue these formal letters, but they cannot deny if someone asks for it.
Hope it helped.
