According to IRCTC, the operation of this train has been stopped till further orders.

Mumbai-Ahmedabad Tejas is already closed
IRCTC has already shut down the Ahmedabad-Mumbai Tejas Express from April 2. IRCTC had earlier said that ‘Train number 82902/82901 Ahmedabad-Mumbai Central-Ahmedabad Tejas Express train will be closed for a month from April 2, 2021.’ According to IRCTC, there is a night curfew in both cities. This is causing problems to the passengers.

The Tejas Express has once again started between Lucknow-New Delhi and Ahmedabad-Mumbai from 15 February. In view of the convenience of passengers, IRCTC has also made arrangements to provide tickets for Tejas Express at the station itself.
