      I have found the way from which we can add bginfo.exe through GPO please refer the following steps.
      Thanks

      Firstly you need to customize the Bginfo.exe as per your requirement then,

      Create a .adm file using the following script.

      CLASS MACHINE
      CATEGORY !!BGInfoCustomSettings
      POLICY !!EnableBGInfo
      KEYNAME "Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policie s\Explorer\Run"
      EXPLAIN !!EnableBGInfo_Explain
      PART !!BGInfoPath EDITTEXT EXPANDABLETEXT
      VALUENAME "PRG_BGInfo"
      END PART
      END POLICY
      END CATEGORY

      [Strings]
      BGInfoCustomSettings="BGInfo Policy"
      EnableBGInfo="Enable BGInfo"
      EnableBGInfo_Explain="Specify the path to your BGInfo batch file here."
      BGInfoPath="BGInfo Path:"


      After creating the above file create a new GPO or open an existing.
      Right Click on Computer Configuration then click on Add/Remove Templates, Then Click on Add and Give the path of .adm file, that we have created.
      Click on Close.

      After that, the new Setting will appear in the Administrative Templates "BGInfo Policy".
      Open the Container and double click on the policy setting "Enable BGInfo".
      Then click on Enable and then enter the path of the customized BGInfo.exe file with /timer:0 Switch and click Apply and OK. (For Example C:\testsystem\bginfo.exe /timer:0)

      Now Update the policy settings using gpupdate /force (On both Client and Server also) and check.
