in I want to look at the GPOs that are being assigned to the OU's that holds the OU (x) having users in it. I am able to find the SCRIPTS in GPO, however cannot find where are they being assigned. I opened the path \\-----logon and found lot of windows command with there names.

I will explain a bit I open the folder or say OU on GPO and on right try to show policy in that script and find path, open the path and find many window command i.e. the script.  However when you assign a script using a GPO it goes somewhere different. So I need to look at the GPOs that are being assigned to the OU's that holds the X OU users.

start at your group policy editor  not at your sysvol folder.

Although i holehartetly agree with David what happens is this.

If you add a logon script, logoff script startup or shutdown script it will be placed in this specific folder.
\\domainname\sysvol\domainname\GPO GUID\User\Scripts\Logoff (or Logon)
\\domainname\sysvol\domainname\GPO GUID\Machine\Scripts\Shutdown (or Startup).

The GUID can be found using the Group Policy Management Console and this way you can find the scripts you are using.

Sorry for the late reply however GPO policy is not locally configured so that I can use group policy editor. I have already checked it. There are many servers so from one of the servers I opened the GPO CONSOLE not local. Here I cannot find anything than what I mentioned in my question. Have checked AD but cannot find any help. So if I open GPO from any server can't look at the GPOs that are being assigned to the OU's that holds the X OU users.  It is not locally.

If you are using the Group Policy Management Console, it will show you all of the GPOs in your forest. You can right click on your domain and click search. You can then search for all GPOs with scripts in them.
