HP-UX11iv3 Update Releases (i.e. those releases that include new product versions and are installed using update-ux) have moved to annual release schedules, with the next update release coming in March 2014.
HP-UX Patch bundles (usually referred to as quality packs, and installed using swinstall) remain on a 6 month cadence. The September 2013 quality pack should be available any day if it isn't already available via the support centre.

do you mean sep-13 quality pack bundle/sep-13 patch bundles for hpux 11.31 will be avl any time soon ?...ideally it should be released sep itself ,i think HP is delaying that ....pls help to clarify as i was speaking one of the HP ASM and he said no patch bundle (sep-13) this year for hpux11.31 ...

Yes thats the case - QPK 1309 should be available soon - its not unusual for the March/September patch bundle to not be released until April/October - you need to get your ASM to check his facts - there is no September 2013 Update Release, but there will be a set of patch bundles.
