clc;clear all;close all
A=reshape (1:16 ,4,4); % 4x4 matrix
B1 = A(1:2:end, 1:2:end);
B2 = A(1:2:end, 2:2:end);
B3= A(2:2:end, 1:2:end);
B4 = A(2:2:end, 2:2:end);
c = reshape([B1 B2 B3 B4].', 4,4)';
c(:,[2,3]) = c(:,[3,2]) % swap columns
For the above the code works properly, but the problem is that I am unable to get orignal matrix back when I use
A=reshape (1:36 ,6,6); % 6x6 matrix
In other words how can I get back 'c' for large square matrix. Is there any generalized way that works for any square matrix.

This should work at least for even sized arrays. I'm sure there are other ways.
s = 8; % must be even
A = reshape (1:s^2 ,s,s);
B1 = A(1:2:end, 1:2:end);
B2 = A(1:2:end, 2:2:end);
B3 = A(2:2:end, 1:2:end);
B4 = A(2:2:end, 2:2:end);
c = reshape([B1 B2 B3 B4].',size(A)).'
c = permute(reshape(c,size(A,1),[],2),[1 3 2])
c = reshape(c,size(A))
When trying to "demosaic" an array with reshape(), it's helpful to split it into an extra dimension and permute.
