‎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
