Abstract: Sufficient conditions are given for the existence of light open mappings between p.l. manifolds. In addition, it is shown that a mapping f from a p.l. manifold $ {M^m},m \geqslant 3$, to a polyhedron Q is homotopic to an open mapping of M onto Q iff the index of $ {f_\ast}({\pi _1}(M))$ in $ {\pi _1}(Q)$ is finite. Finally, it is shown that an open mapping of $ {M^m}$ onto a p.l. manifold $ {N^n},n \geqslant m \geqslant 3$, can be approximated by a light open mapping of M onto N.
