What is meant by carry forward rule?

The carry forward rule envisaged that in a year, 17 ½ per cent posts were to be reserved for Scheduled Castes/ Tribes; if all the reserved posts were not filled in a year for want of suitable candidates from those classes, then shortfall was to be carried forward to the next year and added to the reserved quota for that year, and this could be done for the next two years.
