Then examination all should be of the same pattern and the qualifying criteria should also be uniform for all the students. But first of all, it should be started to primary school students and after that every year one additional class is to be introduced in the same stream.
Now as there are no classes and all teachers are having time work on, they can be asked for making the syllabus and finally, a team can be made to review and finalise the syllabus. HRD Ministry in the Central government should take a lead and implement the same at the earliest and implement and see the result.
English can be made interesting for students through innovative teaching aids and teaching learning manuals created by students.
Lead the leader
Now when we talk about the uniform syllabus, there are many points that need to be tackled before taking a final decision. Some of the common concerns are:
a) Every state has its language and when we have 29 states and 9 union territories and having English the only language as compulsory and the 2nd and 3rd language varies, which language can they finalise?
b) Every state has its own history and teaches its students about is and just an outline about other states. How will the centre decide about the history of the country or each state in the uniform syllabus?
c) Every state has its own geographical importance and changes that is taught to its students. How can the centre decide on teaching about every state under common syllabus?
d) Every state has its own civics and members in the cabinet. How can a common syllabus cover 29 states and 9 union territories?
e) We had so many leaders, kings, rulers, poets, scientists, sports personalities, writers, teachers, etc whos texts are in the syllabus and taught to the students of that state giving importance to local writes and personalities. How can the centre decide on this?
We either have to compromise on certain issues, things and languages to come up or even think of common syllabus in every state for the children in their respective classes. Unless an answer is found the above points, common syllabus for state is out of context.

Good set of points raised by you. Regarding your queries, here are my suggestions.
a)The first language (mother tongue) syllabus is to be decided by that particular state State only. The English and Hindi or Sanskrit language syllabus is to be uniform across the nation. The same Hindi, Sanskrit or English text books can be used as first or second or third language books depending on the state.
b)History, Geography and Civics syllabus is uniform for CBSE and ICSE boards and students of different states study those subjects irrespective of which state they live in and are competing with state board students in competitive exams. So, there is no issue in studying a uniform syllabus.
e)The particular state specific subjects can be included in the 1st language (Non-detail) book. Interested students can study that book.
Since, we already have uniform syllabus boards (CBSE and ISCE) across the nation, I think there will not be a problem for the state boards to follow the syllabus of CBSE board (as the government is of the opinion of bringing in CBSE syllabus across the nation).
