I really do not have any idea about the difference between the two phrases "on the both sides" and "on both sides". They both appear a lot from Google search. I see the the first phrase in this sentence "Green grass is on the both sides of the river." Many thanks.

The usage 'on the both sides' is a colloquialism. Correct English would be 'on both sides'
