Rajjuka.—(IE 8-3; HD), Prakrit Rajuka or Lajūka (EI 2); an officer of the land survey and revenue department, accord- ing to some; but seems to be the governor of a district, one of whose functions was probably the survey of land with a measur- ing rope for the fixation of the amount of the king's share of the produce; probably the same as Greek Agronomoi mentioned by Megasthenes. Note: rajjuka is defined in the “Indian epigraphical glossary” as it can be found on ancient inscriptions commonly written in Sanskrit, Prakrit or Dravidian languages.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
