The actual facts discernible from your post are -
1) You have worked for the same MNC continuously from 11-11-2011 to 27-11-2016 at two different projects in Odisha , Gujarat and back respectively through two different third parties.
2) The first spell was from 11-11-2011 to 14-06-2014 at Odisha.
The second spell was from for about 8 months from 15-06-2014 onwards in Gujarat.
The third spell that commenced some time in February 2015 in Odisha lasted up to 27-11-2016 the date of
your termination on a/c of the alleged completion of the project.
3) It is not clear through whom your services were engaged during the last spell.
4) Since the rotation of the same employee through different contractors for the service of the same MNC is obvious, the entire arrangement seems to be an "umbrella contract"only.
Your statement that you were paid 2.5 months salary on your termination can perhaps prove the tacit admission of the MNC that the sum was paid to you as retrenchment compensation only for the service you rendered them for a period of 5 years.
Better, file a claim for gratuity under the Payment of Gratuity Act,1972 before the area Controlling Authority under the Act in Odisha.

In addition to the reply of Mr. Umakanthan.M, pl note that if your direct employer is different in all
above said three cases than you are not entailed for payment of Gratuity under the Act , however your "Principal Employer" can be ONE only.

You per se have worked from 11.11.2011 to 26.11.2016. ie 5 years +.
But have you checked that on both your transfers, whether the company has considered the period you have taken to report on duty as Break in service?
If that is the case then you will not be eligible for gratuity.
