Abstract: Let $ \mathcal{G}$ be a connected Lie group with Lie algebra $ \mathfrak{g}$. Let $ \operatorname{Int}(\mathfrak{g})$ be the group of inner automorphisms of $ \mathfrak{g}$. The group $ \mathcal{G}$ is naturally equipped with $ \operatorname{Int}(\mathfrak{g})$-reductions of the bundle of linear frames on $ \mathcal{G}$. We investigate for what kind of Lie group the 0-connection of E. Cartan is the unique torsion free connection adapted to any of those $ \operatorname{Int}(\mathfrak{g})$-reductions.
