ftp doesn't "eat" the lines below it when it's run. To redirect things into it, you have to redirect things into it.

Code:
       ftp -in $GATEWAY <<EOF
        user ${USERID} ${PASSWD}
        cd ${PICKUPDIR}
        lcd ${DROPDIR}
        mget MP3_${DATE}*
        bye
EOF

Note the last EOF is on the beginning of the line and MUST BE on the beginning of the line.
# 3  
after adding EOF in script.. while running the script it is asking for password..
# 4  
Please post the current version of the script and the matching output log.

Can you try a manual command-line ftp to verify that the username and password are valid for the ftp account on the NT server?

Please also post what Operating System and version you are running and what Shell this is. Please also post the version of Windows (start/run/winver) in case it is an old one.
