I have applied for a UK VISA 3 months in advance and have mentioned that my UK arrival date is 15th Sept 2019. I also mentioned that I intend to stay for 5 months. Thus my return date will be mid Feb 2020. Now I received my VISA from 03/07/2019 to 03/01/2020. The expiry date is prior to my intended departure date.

What should I do to get dates corrected?

Even though you said your arrival and departure dates when you applied, the visa is usually issued form the date of approval (that explains the July date) then 6 months onwards. I have found several people with similar situations.

I recommend trying to travel earlier, but as that might be a challenge you can contact UK visas and immigration.

If you are contacting them outside of the UK here are your options for contacting them:
