Unable to connect Data Gateway using ODBC Driver (Postgres) to Power Bi Report Builder File

I am getting the below error when I'm connecting my Paginated Report to the data gateway.

An unexpected error occurred
A data source used by this report returned an error.
The target Gateway does not support the requested feature.
No DB connection provider factory for provider 'System.Data.Odbc' has been registered.

Cluster URI:

I have prepared a report from Power Bi Report Builder with making a connection from Postgres using ODBC Drivers, the driver which I have installed on my desktop is 32-bit and it is working fine. For using data gateway as suggested by Microsoft documentation I have installed 64-bit drivers on the Gateway Machine and it is also working fine. But as soon as I open my report I'm getting the above error. Please let me know if any of you also encounter the same issue.
Any help would be appreciated. Also, attaching the screenshots for your reference.


Thanks in Advance.
