Hi Priya,

   Sounds like the voxel size (grid plane spacing) in your map (MRC 
file) is not set.  Use the Coordinates panel in the volume dialog (menu 
Features / Coordinates) and set the voxel size value to the correct size 
in Angstroms for your map.  Then the scale of the map and PDB should 
match.  Look at the Fit in Map tool for aligning the two.
