How should we catch the exception that is rethrown from the catch block itself?if we are to provide another catch block for this exception, where should we write the catch block?or should the exception be handled in the same catch block from which it is thrown?
please clarify.

Hi Mrudul
In case you think the catch block would throw any exception you can catch it in another catch block. Just put an extra try catch around it.

I don't know if I understood your doubt correctly, but there's my answer:
If you're throwing an exception it generally means you want another method to handle it, so there's no obligation to catch it since you declare a throws clause in the method's signature.
See an example:
