No but in order to initiate any action against him you shall have to explain as to why did you keep mum for 30 years from the last incident and one another thing shall have to be considered that what would be the effect on your family life if you are a married lady.

Yes, you can file a case as rape cases do not have any limitation statute barring them but at the outset,I would like to point out that this maybe difficult to prove because the evidence would be difficult to collect.
