I also have stopped receiving push notifications from gmail. I have a samsung galaxy III mini - all was working fine, but after recent app update I no longer receive push notifications. Have checked all settings for sync, notifications etc - but still no luck. It seems that gmail is not autosync - don't know how to fix this. Now getting really frustrated!

Excerpt:

This information is for the Gmail app for Android 4.0 and up.
With the Gmail app for Android, you can choose how you're notified about incoming messages.

Set up your notifications

If you have multiple accounts, you can change your notification settings for each account.

Which messages do you want to be notified about?

All incoming messages
In the Gmail app, touch the menu .
Touch Settings.
Choose an account.
Make sure that Notifications is checked.
Touch Inbox sound & vibrate.
Check the box for Label notifications, or Email notifications (for non-Gmail accounts).
Choose how you want to be notified. See "Learn more about notification settings" below for more information.
For Gmail accounts, continue with the steps below.
Extra steps for Gmail accounts

Go back to the previous page and touch Manage labels.
Select an inbox category such as Social, Promotions, Updates, Forums, or Inbox.
Check the box for Label notifications and choose how you want to be notified about messages in this category.
Go back to the previous page and repeat for the rest of the inbox categories if you see them in your list. Inbox categories are at the top of the list, but not all of them are used in your account.

Try this:
In addition to checking the settings in Application Manager - Gmail in the Android settings and also in the settings in the Gmail app itself on the phone, ALSO go to Settings on Android and then Accounts: Google and select "Sync All." This finally did the trick for me and I am now getting notifications.

Same problem here.
I went to my yahoo mail,added another mailbox, Google popped up, signed in. Now I get notifications from Gmail within my yahoo account. Since 6.01 it's a common pain. Try that. Good luck!
