Suppose if a program throws an exception and the appropriate exception handler starts its execution. If exception handler itself throws the same exception. Does this create an infinite recursion?

Please help

No. The exception is thrown away, and if necessary, has to be caught by another try/catch.

Basically, the exception is handled only if it occurs within the try block. If there's an exception in the catch block it gets thrown to the next level up.
