Nasirabad was a cantonment in Ajmer district in the Indian state of Rajasthan in Central India.
The Barracks was called Inkerman Barracks.
There was a cemetery located just outside the cantonment, beside the railway station.
For many years, at least until 1910, from a military operations point of view, Nasirabad cantonment was part of Bombay Presidency, but may subsequently have been part of Bengal Presidency. The July 1910 Indian Army List indicates the Nasirabad Brigade was part of the 5th (Mhow Division) of the Southern Army, however the same edition lists Mhow as part of the Bengal Ecclesiastical Establishment.
