The new projects were reportedly approved by China at the State Council or Cabinet meeting on January 23.
China has already been building a 510 MW dam at Zangmu and one of the three dams were reportedly bigger than this.
China has been arguing that its dams are run of the river designs, therefore would not be affecting the flows of the water.

About India's concerns about Zangmu dam, Hong said at that time that the dam was not big enough to affect much of the flow to the lower riparian regions and China has not developed new hydro projects on the river.
