Hi Sourin:

 From sge_conf(5) man page:

max_aj_instances
      This parameter defines the maximum amount of array  task  to
      be  scheduled  to  run  simultaneously  per  array  job.  An
      instance of an array task will be created within the  master
      daemeon  when  it gets a start order from the scheduler.

Is this what you need?
