I am currently going through this paper - link.
In their methods section the authors have described they have used dbSNP for checking biallelic expression of genes. I would like to know if dbSNP contains SNPs for intergenic regions i.e. for non coding RNA regions.

Yes, dbSNP is in no way limited to coding SNPs. One example, an intergenic SNP I found in ensembl.org:
