Hi I am using ArcGIS 10.2. I need few text on the map, but require these to be specific distance from bottom right and bottom left corner of map,

no matter what the mapscale is.

Any suggestions?

Are you not able to place text (doesn't really matter what the text says) on the map layout, exactly where you want it, then name the text element and then using arcpy you can change the text for that element based on whatever logic you come up with?

Agreed. Just adding a link to the TextElement object.
