When a thithi falls on 2 days( say between 9.00 a.m today and 9.00 a.m tomorrow), on which day pithru srartham should be performed?. What is the rule on such occasions

In all occasions the thithi must be there during sunset time. only on that time the thithi piutrus sraththam must be done. if the thithi comes between 3 pm from today and ends 4 p.m. next day. then only problem will arise.
In all panchangams they are writing the sraththi thithi in the column sraa.thithi. You have to see the sra.thithi column for pitru sratham.

I will give general timings and for specific times you should consult your vaadyaar. Sraaddam should be done during Aparaanna kaalam. This will approximately start after 1pm...needs to be adjusted for sunrise time. So the thithi should be present during this Aparaanna period. If the thithi occurs on two days whichever day has more thithi present during this period should be taken and the other day will be marked as athithi in panchangam. There are a lot of references in Internet about how the day is divided and how this kaalam is calculated. This applies to Amavasyai too since we are doing tharpanam in the place of sraaddam
