Re opening of an land encroachment case after 20 years of the case

Under any encroachment case 15-20 years back, if one got the release on paper by the administration itself saying there is no encroachment . Then what is the chance of reopening the case after so many years and what could be the probable decision by the administration?

That depends upon nature of the decision. If the decision is based on relevant facts and documents then decision can not be changed. But if the decision is based on wrong facts and documents then the case can be reopened and decision can also be changed.

If the order has been passed that there is no encroachment and no appeal has been preferred by the administration, the order became final and there is no question of reopening it. Once the order became final then can't be reopen unless there is some new ground
