Xiaomi boss stated that the much awaited update for the Redmi 9 might arrive in November which is somewhat in sync with what was stated earlier.
Maybe November with under the hood optimisations
It must be noted that the MIUI 12 update for the Redmi Note 9S, global Redmi Note 9 Pro, and Redmi 9 was supposed to roll out from October 20 as per a Xiaomi Support executive.
Moreover, all remaining Xiaomi devices were expected to get the MIUI 12 update by October-end but the latest information suggests otherwise.
