I am working on a issue where a online cics module is switched off/drained due to ongoing DB2 housekeeping.
I want to make sure that before drained, stopped, the online module should execute piece of cics code that will START itself after certain interval.
Can I achieve this using CICS HANDLE command? Will HANDLE command able to trap module being drained due to DB2 housekeeping running.

There is no such thing as "draining a CICS module". If you wish to stop a CICS transaction prior to DB2 maintenance function being performed and restart it after, that can be done with commands in a batch job.
