Is this coin of Akbar, a 2 Tanki minted at Ahmedabad. KM#41.04. Weight 7.7g. Can any other information like month or Ilahi year be seen?

Dear Amit, the coin is half the weight of a 4 tanki, thus a 2 tanki sounds sensible. The Ilahi month must be Bahman and the Ilahi year is shown in front of the mint-name (Ahmadabad) and is off the flan.

Is the circle at the bottom at around 5 O'Clock on the right image a part of the date - Ilahi 5X (X=0 as Akbar died in Ilahi 50)?

A Similar dated coin

Yes, it must be Ilahi year 50.
The month Sharewar also fits in well, as Akbar died on the 4th of Aban, Ilahi year 50.
So there can't exist any coin with yr. 50 with the month Azar, Di, Bahman or Isfandarmuz.
For those months you find coins in the name of Prince Salim (Jahangir) of Ahmadabad, dated in the 50th Ilahi year.
