Induced conditional expectations of finite index on crossed product $C*$-algebras are considered which are non-algebraically of finite index. The characteristics of actions of (amenable) topological groups on compact Hausdorff spaces $X$ are investigated, ensuring the appearance of a well-defined induced conditional expectation on the corresponding commutative $C*$-a1gebra $C(X)$ and its property to be of finite index. For this purpose Hilbert $C*$-module and topological techniques are used. Special emphasis is placed on discrete group actions.

Keywords: Group actions on compact spaces, induced conditional expectations of finite index, crossed product $C*$-algebras, commutative $C*$-a1gebras
