CII's newly elected President Kris Gopalakrishnan said to revive economic growth and to take the expansion rate to 8-9 per cent in the next two years it is essential to kick start investment. Early implementation of Goods and Services Tax (GST) and Direct Tax Code (DTC) is also important, he added.
