While installation itself I want to set time for uninstallation of that software. It should happen automatically. I don't want to scan and uninstall.

You could run an at job set to run the uninstaller at a specific time right after install many installers and uninstallers come with command line options to allow silent running.  It can be set at (no pun intended) the command prompt or via the scheduler.

Since You including Microsoft Applications as one of your topics, I've pointed you to Microsoft tasks.  You can use at and cron in the unix/linux world to do the same thing.
