Rengmitca is a highly endangered Kuki-Chin language of Bangladesh. It is distinct but closely related to the nearby languages Khumi and Mro. There are fewer than 30 speakers left as of 2014 (Peterson 2015).

Rengmitca is spoken to the northeast of Alikadam town in the southern Chittagong Hill Tracts of Bangladesh.[1]

Peterson (2017)[3] classifies Rengmitca as a Khomic language.
