Infrastructure of Nagpur

The communication system, municipalities, government enterprises, industries, etc, collectively form the infrastructure of Nagpur. The good infrastructure of Nagpur together with its geographic location has made Nagpur one of the most favored IT destinations in India.

Nagpur is a major railway junction of the Western Railways, which is provided with a good network of railways that connects Nagpur with the different parts of India. Nagpur Railway Station is the main railway station of Nagpur, whereas Itwari, Kalamna, Ajni, Khapri, Kamptee, etc. are the sub-stations joining the Nagpur railway station.

Besides the railways, the roadways also contribute towards the Nagpur infrastructure. Nagpur possesses two major highways known as Howra-Dhule (Number 6) and Kanyakumari-Varanasi (Number 7).
