Assuming A1 has Year in -->YYYY-->2015 this format..
B1 has month which in -->mm-->03 format...

Then in C1 you can apply this formula...

This will give you weeknum assuming week starts from Mon-Sunday for the first day of the month...

Hi Saurabh,

The above formula gives me the week number correctly. What changes do I need to take in consideration for week starts from Sunday-Saturday, also how to omit a week number if the week starts from saturday or sunday.

Thanks in advance
