In this paper, we propose a precoded faster-than-Nyquist (FTN) signaling technique for time-domain single-carrier index modulated (IM) symbol transmission. More precisely, eigenvalue decomposition precoding is adopted for the FTN transmission of data bits modulated by single-carrier time-domain IM. While the FTN scheme increases the spectral efficiency and data rate by packing more transmit symbols per block duration than those defined in the Nyquist criterion, time-domain IM works towards the same objective while maintaining symbol sparsity. We analytically derive the constrained capacity of the proposed system. Our simulation results show that the proposed scheme has better bit error ratio (BER) performance over the conventional FTN-IM scheme, particularly for the scenario of a higher packing ratio. In the proposed scheme, $2.5$-dB performance gain is observed at the BER of 10-4, employing the packing ratio of $0.7$ and the roll-off factor of $0.5$ in a channel-uncoded scenario.
