**Abstract**

In this article, we formulate two dual models Wolfe and Mond-Weir related to symmetric nondifferentiable multiobjective programming problems. Furthermore, weak, strong and converse duality results are established under $K$-$G_f$-invexity assumptions. Nontrivial examples have also been depicted to illustrate the theorems obtained in the paper. Results established in this paper unify and extend some previously known results appeared in the literature
