Its a vpn between cisco router and check point. Does anyone know the reason why packets are being decrypted but not encapsulated.

This is a common issue. When you see that you have packets decaps´d but not encaps´d it means that the tunnel is fully setup and you are receiving packets, but you are not sending any packets back. The far most common reason for this is some kind of routing- or nat-issue. For example if your nat is misconfigured the outbound source address is not correct, is not hitting the crypto map and therefore "misses" the vpn-tunnel.

Please post your config here for further help with troubleshooting.
