Abstract: In this paper we will prove that the BCL index for $C^*$-algebras generated by two essentially doubly commuting isometries is equal to the index of the Fredholm tuples formed by these two isometries. We will then compute this index for certain sub-Hardy modules over the bidisk. Some interesting corollaries are also listed.
