Rajdhani Unnayan Kartripakkha, or RAJUK – literally the Capital Development Authority of the Government of Bangladesh – is a Bangladeshi public agency responsible for coordinating urban development in Dhaka, Bangladesh.[1] RAJUK is composed of various public officials, city planners, urban administrators, engineers and architects.

It is the National Authoritative Board on building planning, estates and resources, plot allotment and construction approvals from both public and private entities. It utilizes the Dhaka Improvement Trust (Allotment of Land) Rule of 1969 and The Town Improvement Act of 1953, both scribed since before the Independence of Bangladesh.
