Of course. If a subset $B$ of $A$ has cardinality strictly greater than the cardinality of $A$ itself, then there is an injection from $A$ to $B$, but not from $B$ to $A$, by the Cantor–Bernstein–Schroeder theorem. For an infinite setm, it is possible to have an injection into a proper subset, but there is also a trivial injection (inclusion) from a subset to the whole set.If a set has cardinalitymthen none of its subsets has cardinality greater thanm.

Is it necessarily true for a infinite set case?

If you need more details, tell us what $m$ is here and what is the definition in your context of having cardinality $m$ or greater than $m$.
