Segmentation, Targeting, and Positioning 

The classplus gives a variety of options for tutors to choose from starting from 15,000 to 50,000 Indian Rupees.

The basic difference is according to price attendance, live classes, and the number of times the tutor can assess a particular student.  Based on this a student can choose a plan. This helps the learner to get the maximum benefit from the course and helps the tutor to get a good review system which helps their profile to get on top anytime a new student comes in.
