    can you explain the exact requirement?
    You have a searchable PDF, so why do you need an index page. You can search for any word using full text search isnt it?

    Thanks for responding to my query.

    This pdf is going to be marketed as a 'ebook'... like any conventional print book (all print books consist of index section)... we intend to have a index section in this ebook also.

    This index will consist of all the keywords used in each and every page of the ebook.
