Yukta.—(EI 8-3; HD), an officer in general; also an offi- cial designation (CII, Vol. 1, p. 4); the word used in Rock Edict III of Aśoka is explained by some scholars as the designa- tion of a class of officers, although there also the word may be understood in the sense of ‘an officer’; but it is an official desig- nation in passages like yukta-niyukta-vāsāvaka-adhikārika (Ep. Ind., Vol. XXI, p. 144) where it may be the same as Āyuktaka. Cf. Yuktaka, Āyukta, etc. Note: yukta is defined in the “Indian epigraphical glossary” as it can be found on ancient inscriptions commonly written in Sanskrit, Prakrit or Dravidian languages.
