Topological indices are frequently used in the analysis of different chemical or molecular compounds including drugs. This paper mainly deals with the computation of degree based topological indices of the drug Astragaloside IV and the construction of a network of the indices. The main objective is to detect the subnetworks of the network with highly connected links called modules and the master regulator in that module. This approach would help the researchers to investigate the physio-chemical characteristics of Astragaloside IV based on the master regulatory index in the module where a master regulator index is an index that is at very top of a regulatory hierarchy in a module and is not influenced by any other index.
