Therefore the two separate regression models have been developed to ensure the dividend payout policy. For analyzing the data, the SPSS latest version 26 have been used. But before analyzing the regression model, some assumptions for the normality of the data were checked. Keepin in view the results of the skewness and kolmogorov-smirnov level of significance. Thereafter the empirical analysis further begun to check the normality of financial data through variance inflation factors (VIF). Finally the results of our models show of the both banking industries that the dividend payouts positively and significantly are determined by size, profitability, and deposits. Since the Investment opportunities from both banking sectors didn't explain the significant association with dividend payments. Also the institutional borrowing of both sectors having negative coefficients sign. This mean based on their respective negative coefficients -.004 and -.040 which separately indicate that the One unit increasing in institutional borrowing will decrease respectively .004 and .040 units in dividend payout by the both conventional and Islamic banks.
