Has the 7th CPC been rolled out keeping election in mind?

'The Hindu', famous newspaper has invited opinion on following question through website :-

Has the seventh Pay Commission recommendations for Central government employees been rolled out keeping elections in mind?
Yes :
No :
Can't Say :

Before voting on the above question few lines in this regard given below:-

(1)  The wage revision in all the Public Sector Undertakings and in other Sectors usually takes place every 5th year. Click here to view Rationale Behind Demand for 7th Central Pay Commssion 
(2) There are many serious pay anomaly due to MACP, Entry Pay for direct recruitee, stepping up of pay in regards to junior, merger of 6th CPC pay scale etc. and many court judgements are favouring the Govt employee in this regard.  I
(3)  18 months' time given to 7th CPC to give report is also not enough as 3rd CPC taken 3 years, 4th CPC taken 4 years last 6th CPC taken less than 2 years' time to give report and many anomalies are unsettled in National Anomaly Committee, union/federation has also expressed that 6th CPC is not a successful Pay Commission.  Therefore, 18 months time is also not sufficient.

(4) The Thirteenth Finance Commission has recommended for an increase in pay of Central Government employees from the future date means arrears arising out of Pay Commission awards should be avoided by making the pay award commence from the date on which it is accepted. [click here to view the govt statement on seventh pay commission] This is the main reason behind setting up the pay commission before the date of effect and terms to give the report before 1.1.2016.  If recommendations of 7th CPC will be implemented after 1.1.2016 then no arrears on salary/pension will be given.
