Not able to update the multidex behavior

My application was working fine but that problem came which is related to multidex android. I searched for the problem and did the essential update according to android.developers guide. But its been hours i am fighting with the same problem. Applied different solutions but still the same issue is there. One gradle build is taking 11-12 minutes straight away and to test a solution i have to wait 11-12 minutes which is really killing me. I am sharing my Gradle and manifest file. Please help regarding this issue.

Build.Gradle File

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'

android {
compileSdkVersion 24

defaultConfig {
applicationId "com.example.mudasir.login"

versionCode 1
versionName "1.0"
multiDexEnabled true
}

}
dexOptions{
preDexLibraries = false

The API key for Google Maps-based APIs is defined as a string resource.
(See the file "res/values/google_maps_api.xml").
Note that the API key is linked to the encryption key used to sign the APK.
You need a different API key for each encryption key, including the release key that is used to
sign the APK for publishing.
You can define the keys for the debug and release targets in src/debug/ and src/release/.
