Beijing, Nov 17: Ignoring India's concern, China completed its construction of much discussed dam on Brahmaputra river to initiate work on a 510 MW hydropower station project.

The dam, which was completed on Nov 12, will help in the construction of the Zangmu Hydropower Station project in the middle reaches of the Brahmaputra river in Gyaca County of Lhoka Prefecture in Tibet Autonomous Region, a media report of the country stated.

During its bilateral talk in the beginning of 2010, Indian government raised its concerns to China over the possible downstream impact of the project.

However, China had assured India that the project would be "run of the river" having little impact downstream.
