In the design LUT is present in the clock path even if the gated_clock_conversion is allowed in the synthesis option and gated_clock = yes in the RTL still the LUT is present on the clock path

In this situation, I would manually instantiate a BUFGCE instead of using gated clock conversion. Have you tried that?

What exactly is the functionality of that LUT? If it is something like an AND gate, this looks like it would be some type of bug that should be fixed. The synthesis tool should figure out any type of unary function and be able to ungate the clocks. Are there any KEEP/DONT_TOUCH/KEEP_HIERARCHY attributes in the design that would prevent the clock conversion from happening?
Also, I agree with the previous post. Instantiating your own clock tree is always a great way to make sure you get the exact clock tree that you want.
