The title compound, C12H12N2O3, was synthesized by condensation of methyl aminoacetate with 3-trichloroacetylindole. In the crystal, intermolecular N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the molecules into chains parallel to the b axis. The chains are further connected into a three-dimensional network by N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds involving the indole N atom. In the molecule, the indole skeleton is nearly planar [maximum deviation = 0.012 (1) Å] and the mean plane of the amido group is twisted from the mean plane of indole ring by 17.2 (1)°
