Replace these two lines

op=`grep Ciadev $TEMP | cut -d '-' -f 3,4 | sed 's/uCiadev/Ciadev/g' | sed 's/-P//g'` 
echo $op >> $HOME/final/output.txt


egrep 'Ciadev|absdev|absprod' $TEMP | cut -d '-' -f 3,4 | sed 's/uCiadev/Ciadev/g' | sed 's/-P//g' >> $HOME/final/output.txt

egrep- searches multiple items at the same time. Below is the syntax

egrep ciadev|absdev|absprod $TEMP

Though not sure of your requirement..hope something like below could help you to proceed further...

if [ "$TEMP" != "$0" ] 
	for i in ciadev absdev absprod                
		op=`grep $i $TEMP | cut -d '-' -f 3,4 | sed 's/uCiadev/Ciadev/g' | sed 's/-P//g'` 
	        echo $op >> $HOME/final/output.txt
