Is it mandatory to intialize a variable declared in an interface?

Yes! I think they are.
Try comiling a interface with a variable that is not instanciated and you will get a compile error

You can't declare variables in interfaces. You can only have public static final fields - i.e. constants. These must be given a value within the interface.
