This paper deals with an index which is different in general from the topological index defined by Atiyah and Singer because we loosen the normalization property. The intrinsic relation of this new index with operations in K-theory is explained. It is also shown that if we change the normalization axiom, the corresponding index is well-defined and may be expressed in terms of the topological index.
