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.
