H Sarvaksh,

This just protects the edge of the racket in case you hit it on the table during your strokes.

If for example you scrub the edge of the rubber against the table at the end of a push, the edge tape can also help preventing the rubber to be lifted of the blade. It covers the side of the blade, but also some of the rubber, holding the whole thing together.
