The waning phase of the Moon during Hindu Bhaadrapada(Telugu/Kannada lunar) month, which falls around September, is called Mahalaya Paksha or Pitru Paksha. A Paksha is of 15 days. Pitru Paksha is extremely important for Hindus, as a fortnight of revering their ancestors and clearing their Karmic debts. Hindus perform Shraddha(Tithi) during this fortnight. Pitru Paksha/Mahalaya Paksha rituals are compulsorily to be done, as per the right procedures, by every Hindu, annually.
