    Dividend payout policy has potential roles to be considered as part of the firm’s strength to operate smoothly in the corporate world. Profitability along with other essential factors has significant impact on dividend decisions of a corporation. Thus, it becomes an important issue for firm’s to identify the factors determining dividend payout policy. Considering the existing literatures on dividend determinants, the paper attempts to construct an empirical model for selected commercial banks in Bangladesh and provide recommendations which will further develop the dividend payout policy for banks and other industry listed in Dhaka and Chittagong Stock Exchange (DSE & CSE). The empirical findings reveal that current earnings and liquidity has potential roles for firms to determine payout policy.
