Do not over whelm that you can prove the contract is sham or camouflage.
Be informed that the job is only limited to period for which your Employer/Contractor got the work or cease of work order.
Do you have any such contract with principal employer that contractor may change but not the workman, as long the work continues?

If you were employed through contractor then you are having a weak case to fight in the light of Hon'ble Supreme court cases SAIL and Umadevi.
but if you have direct contract with the concerned department, then you may fight for regularisation. If the department is of Central Govt you may approach Labour department of Central Govt in your city . If the department is of State Govt then approach the Labour Dept of State govt for further guidance.

Nowdays the contracts are awarded for 2 years extendable for further period of 1 year. You will rarely find any contract awarded for 4 or 5 yrs. In Public Sectors, Principal Employers change contractors every 3 years or after completion of contract whichever is earlier. Contract workmen are appointed for a fixed period / contractual period thru the contractor and not by the Principal employer, therefore you do not have direct relation and employee and employer with the Principal employer.
Principal Employers also insist for issuance and submission copies of appointment letters issued to contractual workmen by the contractors and ensure that there is no direct or indirect liability of workmen on them.
The New contractor has liberty to refuse you employment if he has sufficient and specialised manpower with him. He may not afford to pay you the salary which you were drawing at the end of the contract, if the contractor has signed the contract for lesser amount or offered lesser rate. Therefore it is advisable to continue with the stream and look for opportunity elsewhere after gaining some experience and using your talent.
