This really depends on the type of plant you're referring to, as it could be normal in some plants (such as with certain varieties or varietgated plants). An issue with light can sometimes cause inner leaves to become more pale in color while outer leaves remain darker green. Nutrient deficient plants can also have symtoms similar to this.
