And if Safety is the Main Concern... Then Why Aren't New Coaches Upgraded With It, Even the Ones Manufactured in 2011...
and I guess No Coach of WR/CR is Having it...
Only SCR is Having it I Guess...

CBC Coupling are heavy in load and can tolerate high acceleration & braking (Freight Wagon Coupling resembles CBC Coupling), which Normal Old Coupling cant tolerate (Kerela Exp Pantry Coupling Break @ MTJ)
CBC enabled Coaches can be fitted only in CBC Coupled Coaches & hence complete rake is been utilized for any CBC Coupled Rake!! Thats the reason why New Coaches can be found, with Non-CBC enabled coupling!!
It has nothing to do with CR/WR. They may not be frequent in changing Complete Rake

GT Exp & other superfast have to brake much frequently & furiously, making the jerk feel much more, while DRNTO/Shatabdi Brake application isnt that frequent & if, its quite smoother & the feel bad factor is quite less!!
