A company conducts campus placement in about 10 to 12 colleges. Overall they shortlist about 100 to 110 students from all the colleges and calls them for next round of interviews. After over 2 to 3 months of drama they provide offer to 10 to 15 students just in case if someone backs out. The position and salary is not that great but for a fresher its an average pay job with average skills required for that job and any graduate with average score can do the job. So why waste so much time ? This is not a one-time deal they do this annually ? Is this normal or they just do it so the HR has something to do for that period ? Why waste so much resources for this ?

You didn't mention what kind of job this is, but I assume that it's a Junior Position.

110 Interviews for 10 positions is already stretching it, a lot. Its not uncommon for companies to interview hundreds of candidates per position, especially when they're big companies.

A junior position or a job "that everyone with a degree can do" is usually just a stepping stone to more responsibilities in the company. They want to make sure to get a decent employee who is useful in the role, a good fit for the company culture, gets along with prospective coworkers and (maybe) is fit to eventually moving to a more senior position. All of that takes lots of screening and usually lots of candidates.

Resources spent on finding the proper candidate as opposed to someone that could cause issues later aren't wasted. Hiring is a notoriously expensive process.
