If company A wants to expand its business it will take a loan and higher interest rate is a disincentive for the same, hence less investment. Hope it helps.

Fear of gst affected 1st half of last year as well because companies started selling out their old stocks without doing new investment . Further havoc created by demonetisation had crippled the demand .... thes 2 factor combined with global factors are the reason for 1st half of last year low growth parameter. And latter half is suffering because of the complexity of the process and many unaddressed issues of gst under the effect of quick fix as a episodic governance.
