We work out the factorization of the 3d superconformal index for N = 2 U(N c ) gauge theory with one adjoint chiral multiplet as well as N f fundamental, N a antifundamental chiral multiplets. Using the factorization, one can prove the Seiberg-like duality for N = 4 U(N c ) theory with N f hypermultiplets at the index level. We explicitly show that monopole operators violating unitarity bound in a bad theory are mapped to free hypermultiplets in the dual side. For N = 2 U(N c ) theory with one

The index computation provides combinatorial identities for a dual pair, which we carry out intensive numerical checks.
