There are currently 956 objects in OSM with the tag "wikidata=Q1340361":

   https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/wikidata=Q1340361

where:

   https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q1340361

is the item for the State Bank of India.

The tag should almost certainly be:

   operator:wikidata=Q1340361

or, less likely,

   brand:wikidata=Q1340361
   franchise:wikidata=Q1340361

with the only exception perhaps being the bank's HQ.

Can anyone confirm what the correct tag should be, and can we use an
automated process to correct them?

It's possible that the same issue applies to some of the other
high--use tags listed at:

   https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/wikidata#values

I've just raised a ticket to ask that Tagnfo display Wikidata labels
on the latter page, which will make error fixing easier:
