During the reign of Ashoka, the officials called Rajukas had held a significant place. Ashoka in his administrative policy implemented the Rajukas as the sole agency to execute his plans of reforms. Originally the Rajukas were the officials in charge of measurement of land and settled those if there arose any dispute.
Since they were connected with the land revenue department, they normally had a great influence in the rural areas. Ashoka during implementing the administrative policies, enhanced their powers and positions and made them the most important officers of Janapadas. Gradually the Rajukas became the key officers and were entrusted to execute Ashoka's most welfare projects and administrative reforms.
