India's Consul General in New York presided over NASDAQ's closing bell ceremony as the stock exchange's electronic board displayed the Indian tricolour at Times Square, to mark India's 63rd Independence Day.

In recognition of India's emergence as a global economic power, the world's largest stock exchange invited India's Consul General Prabhu Dayal to ring the closing bell at the NASDAQ headquarters in mid-town Manhattan.

Terming it as a "very important occasion," Dayal noted that his presence at NASDAQ on the eve of Independence Day emphasised the strong partnership between India and the US.

The Consul General rang the closing bell on Friday at NASDAQ, which lists seven Indian companies with combined market capitalisation of $35 billion.
