Abstract: Let $ {M^{2n - 1}}(n \geqslant 3)$ be a strictly pseudoconvex abstract $ {\text{CR}}$-hypersurface $ {\text{CR}}$-immersed in the unit sphere in $ {{\mathbf{C}}^N}$. We show that the pseudoconformal connection induced on $ M$ by the standard flat connection agrees with the intrinsic normal connection of Cartan-Chern-Tanaka if and only if $ M$ is pseudoconformally flat. In this case $ M$ is a piece of the transverse intersection of $ {S^{2N - 1}}$ with a complex $ n$-plane in $ {{\mathbf{C}}^N}$.
