Abstract. Let $[z-w]$ be the smallest invariant subspace of $H^2$ over the bidisk containing $z-w$. Let $M$ be an invariant subspace satisfying $[z-w]\subsetneqq M \subset H^2$. We denote by $F^M_z$ the compression operator of the multiplication operator by $z$ on $M\ominus w M$ which is called the fringe operator of $M$. It is proved that $F^M_z$ is Fredholm and ${\rm ind} F^M_z=-1$. Its generalizations are also given.
