Ajni is Major railway station in vicinity of Nagpur in Maharashtra which is lying on Nagpur-Hyderabad line and Delhi-Chennai line.

It is situated at a distance of about 2.8 km from Nagpur railway station. There are plans to develop it as a terminus alternative to Nagpur. A proposal has also been sent to Railway Ministry to develop it as a Coaching complex.[1] The distance between Nagpur main railway station and Ajni Station is shortest distance between two railway stations in India.

Almost all the trains have a brief stop of about 2 minutes at this station.
