The best option I can see to fulfill your requirement is to use GP preferences

Create brand new GPO and navigate to computer configuration\preferences and navigate to users
There you can create new local users in update mode with required password and remaining password and also you can set their group membership as well

Once you have done, apply this policy on OU containing computers
During next reboot \ GPO update interval new users will be created on client computers
Once it get created next time policy will check if user already exists, then it will skip their recreation.
If some body deletes them, policy will recreate them

Also if computer configuration is not working then move the settings to the User section of preferences instead of Computer, then enabled group policy loopback processing to apply it to the computer.
Loop back processing can be found under computer configuration\administrative templates\system\group policy in the same GPO

Mahesh,
Don't you need a domain and windows server to use group policy?

Method 1 - run a powershell script for multiple computers

Get-Content c:\servers.txt | foreach {
#Create the account
$username = "user1"
$comp = [adsi] "WinNT://$_"
$user = $comp.Create("User", $username)
$user.SetPassword("P@ssw0rd")
$user.SetInfo()
#Set password to never expire
$ADS_UF_DONT_EXPIRE_PASSWD = 0x10000
$user.userflags = $ADS_UF_DONT_EXPIRE_PASSWD
$user.SetInfo()
#Add the account to the local admins group
$group = [ADSI]"WinNT://$_/Administrators,group"
$group.add("WinNT://$_/$username")
}

Method 2 - create batch file with below commands
net user user1 Passw0rd1 /add /passwordchg:no
net localgroup Administrators user1 /add
wmic.exe UserAccount Where Name="user1" Set PasswordExpires=FALSE

Method 3 - create a vb script with below commands
strComputer = "atl-ws-01"
Set colAccounts = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputer & "")
Set objUser = colAccounts.Create("user", "Admin2")
objUser.SetPassword "09iu%4et"
objUser.SetInfo


***remember to modify these commands for your requirement and test them on test computer/environment, i have also included commands to add accounts in admin group but you can remove it if required.
