Content: A number of topological indices ($TI$s) was increasing rapidly in the past decade. However, their applications do not follow such trend. This fact significantly decreases the reputation of chemical graph theory in scientific community. As a remedy for such problem, stringent criteria for the introducing a "new" topological index must be applied. In nineties, Randi\'c has gathered a set of properties that some newly proposed $TI$ must have in order to be further considered in researches. One of these qualities will be discussed here.
