All degree colleges in the State will offer courses only in English medium from the 2021-22 academic year.
At the same time, government schools in some rural areas are seeing poor enrolment and are on the verge of closure.
No fee will be charged from enrolled students and the Board will also provide free course material and uniforms.
It was also proposed that aided colleges should be either handed over to the government or private completely if they cannot be run independently.
52 schools with makeover such as science labs, smart classrooms, libraries have come up in various districts since last year and the plan is to raise the number to 100.
