India to take 'considered view' on Brahmaputra dams

Defence Minister A.K. Antony Thursday said the government was yet to get details of China's plan to construct upstream dams on the Brahmaputra river and will take a considered view on the move.

"We will take a considered view about that," Antony told reporters at a function here when asked about China's move to build three hydropower dams in the middle reaches of the river which originates in Tibet Autonomous Region and flows into India.

A media report Wednesday said that the Chinese State Council had approved the dams under an energy development plan for 2015.
