Interim dividend is for returning money to shareholders. Most of large listed profit making entities issue both interim and public dividend. Almost all NSE 50 and BSE 30 companies do. It is common in large public companies with a diversified shareholding of retain, institutional share holders. Promoters if they are not in employment of the company, the only way they can earn money is through dividends. No limit on # of times an interim dividend can be declared. Some companies do it max 3 times, that too once in a while. Usually it is 1 . Any number more than 1 it is a waste of precious time of secretarial staff in processing dividend
